Default Science and Technology Forum?

How about as an addition to the enclave we create a science and technology forum? What does TO think?

Wouldn't such topics fall into either Serious Debate and Discussion (if it's breakthrough, cutting edge controversal stuff), general Enclave or Programming/Computers?

Although that isn't to say I'm dismissing the idea outright, maybe expanding the Programming/Computer to include other Technological subjects?

Since I'm not certain what you mean by "Science & Tech" forum, then idk if a new board would be worth it. There's not really a lot of science or tech talk, most of it is in the Enclave or the SD&D. Maybe a sub-board or something.

I like the idea. There have been a few occaisions when I've seen something really interesting but it's not serious and controversial enough for SD&D.

It does seem like a good idea when you consider the debates that could be considered. Nanotechnology for example or Quantum computers

I suppose it would be a more serious board than the Enclave, but more relaxed than the SD&D.

Oh god...

I remember someone starting a topic like that...

We had 35 pages of high level math and two people going at it like a bunch of rabid professors.

Yeah I guess some people do have to bring the very literal sides of themselves in. Still if it could be moderated properly than there's no reason why we can't have a go at it
