INSILICO is a dark futuristic metropolis, slowly floating several thousand meters high above the clouds.

Each of them is connected to its own reactor farm on the bottom of the sea with long, heavily guarded cables, protected against eco terrorists and different groups of rebelling cyborgs and labor-androids trying to take down the cities.

New World Notes, Wagner James Au’s SL blog, has a new article on Insilico just posted. Well, to be more exact its really an article about another article that was written recently by our friend Voodoo Buwan, but we still appreciate the attention, even if he calls it a Dystopian Metropolis Shopping Mall, which it sure ain’t.
