MegaCorps

So finally getting time to get back into this project.

As a starting point I sat down tonight and gave the combined article a read thru.

Various initial thoughts:

a) We may (probably will) need to make some tweaks to the earlier history. Most of it is set in the Interplanetary Age prior to the Technocalypse and we've made considerable changes to that period since this Topic was written.

b) We will need to add to the history to expand the level of detail in the Federation Age and extend that history further across the timeline. Current it thins out and all bet ends with the end of the Federation period and then jumps into the Sephirotics and covers that entire period in about 2 sentences.

c) We've been talking a good bit about how the megacorps might have been organized and what they might have become - that will need to be polished up a bit and then folded in (in some cases replacing) with what is currently there.

d) We will probably want to look at the current description of how megacorps work(ed) internally as well as the IP Age economic factors that formed that internal structure and determine if we want to modify it and how.

e) We may also want to look at describing multiple types of internal structures (both past and present) for megacorps in the vein of our focus on Diversity! Diversity! Diversity! It seems logical that not all megacorps would operate in exact same fashion, although they may fall into broadly similar types.

f) The role of transapients definitely needs to be worked into the article fairly early on and throughout their history.

g) The role of augmentation in megacorps is an area we should definitely explore.

My initial thoughts for now.

Hoping to have time to start working on a draft rewrite this weekend. As part of that will also go back and review the various links posted here. If anyone has any additional thoughts or ideas they'd like to post for consideration between now and then, please feel free.

Thanks!

Todd
