Hash: SHA1

I've been discussing inter-nomic trade with someone from Thermodynomic, and 
he's got some interesting ideas: (formatting ruined by deep reply-nesting)

The other possibility is to establish a grid in Thermo. Then, we could
convince Thermo, B Nomic, and maybe Agora (which, when I was a player at
least, had the Land of Arcadia through which players move and play a strange
go-like game) to put in portals connecting them to one another. If a player
changes which Nomic e is geographically in, then e brings all of eir things
into the target Nomic and begins to be governed by the movement rules of
that Nomic. This, of course, allows for transportation of Things.

Also, now that there is Josh - yes, that is relevant - I plan to submit a
proposal to Thermo that may lay the groundwork for an economy. The currency
would be Coins, so maybe get those into B Nomic if we go with the "Free
Trade" idea.
