Re: Some advice to the president ¶
Between all of us, the distribution of skills and just five mins of time it's remarkable what we should be able to achieve. However, there's currently no place for us to "work together" - The closest being this forum, but that is woefully underequipped to handle a large range of tasks. I did put up a feature request for colloborational tools - maybe 'collobora' or something.
A global post office isn't a particular good idea - Individual countries already tend to have such services. Besides, global is far too narrow in scope. Once we are established in the stars there's potential for delivery services for others initatives. There's quite a bit to worry about before we get that far, though. Once we actually have our own places to deliver mail to, this would begin to make sense. The larger distances can be handled like any other cargo just leaving sorting and "last mile" delivery to reconcile. Physcial and digital networks are highly important, but I'd suggest concentrating on digital first. This is already the defacto method of communications between us, and we really need to make efforts to secure it and deploy systems with resillience.
I think we'd all like the nation formally established(well, technically that's already happened - what we need now is formal recognition) as soon as possible, but again, There's quite a bit to worry about before we get that far. To be taken as anything more serious than a collection of random interwebs nutcases we must demonstrate many things, least of all our capacity to govern ourselves.
