Here's the project I've been announcing on all the social networks...

Welcome to UbiquiCity.
A medium-sized metropolis of the early 22nd century, the sprawling development known colloquially as “UbiquiCity” is the latest city on the continent to have received a civic upgrade of public and commercial services within its central business district, along with a selected number of urban and suburban districts. These wealthy and powerful districts possess the latest in smart technology, with every building, device and control system connected via the Internet Of Things.

Cars and trucks drive themselves, drones fill the skies, cloud-trained robots perform once-human jobs. Phones, homes, appliances, vehicles, media devices, shops, shelves, products, sidewalks, streetlights, roadsigns and even toilets all communicate with each other electronically, and an artificially-intelligent CitySystem manages the distribution, use and recycling of resources for optimal economy. For the inhabitants of the Ubi Zones, life is sweet. But not everyone in the metropolitan region is so blessed...

------------------------------ # # # ------------------------------

UbiquiCity will be presented in two ways: (1) as an anthology of short stories about characters and events in a future city where ubiquitous computing is the source of much innovation, rennovation and social disruption, and (2) as a GameMaster’s Sourcebook usable with any science fiction roleplaying game featuring future cities and ubiquitous computing.

Members of the Project Ubi Team include...
Nikos Carcosa
Antony Copeland
Tod Davies
DeAnna Knippling
S L Koch
Shariann Lewitt
Adrian McCauley
T Reynolds

As lead designer, curator and publisher of this ambitious project, I'll be dropping updates and answering any questions posted here as it develops.

It is very much an attempt to depict our present future. :-)
