Well, there was a reason for that...Before it became possible 
to create a society by a game action, one could only create 
them through a proposal.  That "...but clear it with me" 
proposal was a society-creation proposal for M-Tek, setting me 
up as the Prez.

The DimShip series was meant to be a neo-Verne science and 
exploration story, except the exploration aspects ground to a 
halt with the Barney fiasco, and Wonko's subsequent DimShip 
scam.  I didn't have M-Tek in mind when I started the series, 
but it seemed logical to piggyback off the story line.

After that it was just a convenient medium.  And, in all 
fairness, I never went as far as the Baron, who composed a 
company that had a covert paramilitary arm...peon blew up my 
lab with it too...:P
