xkcd [a.k.a. Randall Munro in Colorado] does some great cartoon panels, got a good write-up on boingboing.net and email poured in. This one (above) could even be about a trek to the northern regions in 2121 where an inhabited, operating polar city lies inside that huge cavernous mountain. Take a look. [Draw on, Randall! And thanks for sharing this one!]
Meanwhile, we received our first application for residency in our proposed and planned Model Polar City for Longyearbyen, Norway in 2015, funded perhaps by Sir Richard Branson or Bill Gates (negotiations are still underway). "Joey" wrote to us today in an email, completely out of the blue:
Great job on the Polar Cities material. Saw it today on the news sites. I was just telling my wife last week that I wish there was some way to a:) get affordable housing in Longyearben and b.) have a "green" home in the polar regions.
I work for a distributed company, so I can live anywhere in the world. Living in one of these polar cities model research sites would be very fun for us (and our small child). I wish you the best with this project."
