In an anarchist society, who gets to decide where roads get built?
And how do you create a park, without anyone building a house in the middle?
This is not vague critique, I'm genuinely interested in any models or suggestions you have.

I find it kinda funny how computers are supposed to do exactly what you tell them to, but because SPEEEED, someone told the computers to guess ahead of time what might happen, instead of just doing what the instructions actually says.
And now everyone is hurting, because we told computers to do stuff we didn't ask them to.
This game is a bit addictive and it's kinda sad whenever humanity goes extinct. But such a warm fuzzy feeling when the colonists end up weird but happy. http://philome.la/johnayliff/seedship/play
While getting dressed I find myself pondering a video game where you are a shoulder dragon with shoulder dragon sized problems. Sure, the wizard whose shoulder you ride on has some complex world-in-peril narrative to deal with, and every now and then she makes you do some weird mission that can only be accomplished by a tiny dragon, but mostly you're concerned with lazing around the place while she does research, stealing cookies from the cabinet, chasing the local rats and birds, accumulating a shoulder dragon sized hoard of shiny things, and so on.
It would be the most relaxing thing ever.
I'm still frustrated and a bit angry about the ephemerality of mastodon and other feed-based social media.
I want context! I crave explicitly defined in-groups!
I can't handle all this uncertainty of "is anyone reading what I wrote, why hasn't anyone reacted, how many people have actually seen this" ! >:(
