The Fictional Novel "Utopia"

prabe, you're right if you're talking present-day. To me, however, I took it to be about 5-10 years in the future (when technology has advanced a bit, but not too much to make it uber-futuristic).

I wasn't talking about the magic-tech bits (AI and holographics) as I don't know much about those other than the very basics. I was referring to basic things such as the design of the coasters (not the other rides) and some of the tech-speak when the characters were talking about the surveillance system. He had them doing something with the time coding that would work, but was pointless.

On the bright side, all the Tagalog (native Phillipine language) he used was right. But I don't really consider that technical.

I got that book 2 years ago for Christmas. Very good book, they should make a movie. It would be awsome if there were actually a park like that

Mr. Gates would probably have enough money to build it.

But then again, do you really want to ride something that depends on Windows? :) I can see it now - "General Coaster Fault." and maintenance would just suggest restarting it :)

And you'd have to hit Start to do an E Stop and shut it down;).

"It also takes some indirect stabs at the current loss of vision being experienced by the Disney parks."

Yep! There were also some jabs that you'd only catch if you're a current/former Disney employee or really rabid fan too. :)

That was a cool book. CPLady had started it when we went on our first BeastBuzz trip together (I don't think she's ever finished it though) and then I found it at the library.
