Okay, 1:3 width:height right triangle ratio makes most sense for the central atrium. Something closer to 1:sqrt(3) for the outside, I think.

With the dimensions decided, now I can put a model in situ somewhere in a Minecraft world, or a physical model in a blanket-fort land of my own construction.

Conversations in the today led me to contemplate a Looney Tunes/Dune crossover.

Here's a ~150-word opening scene I wrote: archiveofourown.org/works/2437

And here's my photo edit of Yosemite Sam in Sting's codpiece:

In a landmark decision the German Constitutional Court has ruled that mass surveillance of telecommunications outside of Germany conducted on foreign nationals is unconstitutional.

Is this more of a question about selling things below cost or about starting a company on investor money or the intersection of the two?

Superficial hypothesis about the Nature of the Internet 

The best part of the internet it was formatively based on American free speech jurisprudence, and the worst part is that it was formatively built on American business practices

(even if the Supreme Court is still stuck on "is it more like a radio or a newspaper?")

@NylaWoethief If it has some tangential relationship to a fandom, or you are willing to argue the point, you may be able to use archiveofourown.org, which can generate epubs.

Thanks to once-upon-a-time suggestion by @cryptovexillologist I'm now reading Italo Calvino's "Invisible Cities", which is a real trip. So many different ways of looking at cities, not as built environments, but as the stories they tell.

@solarsymposium Rereading this, I really wonder why there wasn't just a train connection all the way across Unity Park. Requiring people to transit Unity Park by another mode of travel makes the naming almost sarcastic. "We are united, but not in ways that promote commuting across the border." Which, after 250 years, is really suspicious. Like if you had to row yourself across the Potomac.

I'm curious how this lack of unification will play out in Eun Sol's schooling.

13289 words, including one phoned-in sex scene. This story's is completed; it just needs edit passes for pronoun matching and all the other things, like typos.

And the art for the companion story.

12200 words in the sex AU, and I think I have an idea of where the final sex scene will end.

But there's still probably a couple thousand words left in the story. :|

And the illustrations on the other story yet to go, as well.

Work on the pyramid continues; I think an interior atrium width:height ratio anywhere on the taller side of 1:1.5 works great. On the outside, however, things start to get a bit Transamerica Pyramid if the building is three times its width, so I'll probably aim for less than that.
