Public Press World Game!
So, I really enjoy the World variant. I've played a couple full press and gunboat games, but have never tried a public press game. I personally think that such a game would be rather fun, with tons of potential for negotiation on a global forum.

Public press World game still needs 2 players
May not everyone has a look into the older thread anymore.
But we still need 2 players for our public press game with 48hours / phase and Anonymous players. You are in for 35 D.

Henotheism
Henotheism is the belief and worship of a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities. The term was originally coined by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling (1775–1854) to depict early stages of monotheism, however Max Müller (1823–1900), a German philologist and orientalist, brought the term into common usage.

@largeham - Pick up Philip K. Dick's Necromancer sometime and give it a read. It's a very good book. A prequel to his Dorsai series.

Wouldn't the computer programmers enjoy inordinate power and understand how to gain a position the computer favored.
Draugnar (25 D X)

A computer as judge, jury, executioner, president, yadda yadda yadda is a very bad idea. Justice must be tempered with mercy and government must be run with compassion. Pure logic doesn't allow for either of those. Spock's "the needs of the many out wiegh the needs of the few" is not a way to govern. If it were, then the infirm, mentally ill, elderly, even the poorest of the poor would be subject to elimination to provide for the largest collective group. Logan's Run (as b-grade as it was) did a great job in pointing out what happens when computers take over and try to make a utopian society. No one over thirty - every one was "reborn" (killed in the movie's reality) to make way for the younger generation of workers. Sure, hot chicks were aorund every corner and all of them wanted to fuck, but utopia was anything but.

@Draugnar, Phillip K Dick? According to the Wiki page for Necromancer and the Dorsai series, the writer is Gordon R. Dickson.

Regarding the supercomputer running humanity, sounds a bit like Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Draugnar (25 D X)
20 Apr 12 UTC
Oops, you are correct. Sorry. Dickson, Dick... Big oops. It's been years since I read it, but Necromancer is a good book. Very thought provoking.

I saw this wonderful news article on the BBC and I thought it was worth sharing - not only because it's so ridiculous it's comedic but also because it reminded me of our resident Swede, Vaft :)
