Went to Vonda N. McIntyre's memorial service today. Looks like nearly 200 people attended. Lots of stories were shared. Some came all the way across the country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vonda_N._McIntyre
I've know Vonda since the mid '90s, but some of the people there knew her since the early 1970s, when she established Clarion West.
Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
