sim city

At right is a picture of the city of Toronto seen from a 45-degree angle. At left is a screen shot from the computer game Sim City, in which the player's objective is to develop and maintain a city, including traffic streams, utilities, population and so on. Yes, it's just a game, but remember, the young gamers of today will grow up to be the urban planners of tomorrow.

From our Fake for Real series.

Sorry... my mistake Pascal. Pictures were switched. Fixed now.

are you *sure* that the photo is on the left?
(I could believe that the right one is in-game graphics, not of the first simcity-version though :)

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
