No sure I like the idea of a course about cities which starts out by comparing humans to ants. Good luck with the credit card thing anyway.

Paul M. Cray

There was a "SimAnt" back in the early 1990s after the success of "SimCity". I do also like the idea of ant colonies as a possible analogue for human arcologies (minus, of course, some of the potential ideological issues). But people in cities do follow certain kinds of pattens of behaviour that make cities what are and will produce similar effects in different circumstances as well as phase changes to new patterns of behaviour under the correct conditions.

Going to go down to Hugo House tomorrow and see if they will accept my credit card in person.
