Planning For The Future

It looks like Dubai (the new vacation spot for those with too much money) is planning to build the world's first underwater hotel.

This is not a new idea, at least not to me or everyone else who suffered through Attack of the Clones, we've seen the concept. It is time to take this past the point of science fiction and move it towards rebuilding New Orleans. If we have the technology to build places for people to play, we have the technology to build places for people to live.

Plus, think of all the tourism dollars it would bring to the area. Planning for the future is much more productive than trying to reproduce the past. At least in this instance.

It's time we were in the forefront of innovation instead of watching from the sidelines. Like a third world country.

  1. I suppose when you've got piles of money to waste...

    I saw an article in Wired recently showing how many countries were planning mega-skyscrapers. Dubai and the UAE were at the front of the list.
