Because of COURSE people in the future will use methods of electronic currency that project the user's financial information as glowy holograms for all to see.  Nothing about this is impractical.

OOooooh boy. Some days I'm all apologetic and sorry when a page is late and half-finished, other days I'm all "you people are lucky I managed to get anything online at all." Today is definitely the later. Between various distractions, multiple bouts of technical difficulties, and an every-mounting wave of burn out, this is one of those pages that just did NOT want to get done. Insert the usual bit about checking back later for the finished version that will have color and backgrounds and all that.

Okay, so you know all that stuff I rambled on about all the Far Out There Patreon stuff I've got coming in the future? Well, that was the good news, today I'm gonna drop the bad news. Well, good news followed by bad then followed by more good. SO, like, a really terrible sandwich. Anyway, that batch of Conventional Wisdom Otakon comics I keep saying is almost done really IS almost done. Like, they'd be online RIGHT NOW if I hadn't had to switch gears and do Far Out There today. They'll get posted sometime this weekend. For real! But here's the thing: that's still only half the Otakon 2018 comic, there's still around ten more to finish AFTER these... and I need to get them all finished and online before Anime Weekend Atlanta... and I head down to Georgia for that on the 20th. That's... not very far away, at all.

So, yeah, I'll be FRANTICALLY scrambling to get everything finished over the next week and a half, and there's several ways this could end up disrupting Far Out There updates over that period of time. Voting Incentives are definitely going to go on hold for at least one or two updates, though I can't say for sure how many it'll end up being. Also, I miiiiiiight have to resort to posting a few pages in this line-art-only form just to make sure they get done in time. I mean, if the choice is between making Layla's jacket blue and just not getting a page done in time, I think we can all endure some coloring book simplicity for a few pages, right?

But here's the good part: AFTER all this blows over, once the Otakon stuff is past and I get the AWA stuff done with, that's ALL for Conventional Wisdom in 2018! I'll be able to spend the tail end of the year focusing entirely on Far Out There! ...well, except for Conventional Wisdom Patreon stuff, and filler pages, and tumblr stuff and blah blah blah. But none of that involves routine-disrupting road trips or time sensitive deadlines or any of that crap, so it won't screw with Far Out There's schedule anywhere NEAR as much as these big convention updates have. The long road is nearly over!

And lest we forget: NEW VOTING INCENTIVE! (enjoy them while they're not on pause!)

@alt text: Don't worry, no one would ever put enough money on a simple Cash Card© for that too be an issue! It only shows the balance after all, and who would carry the equivalent of hundreds of dollars (quite likely more) in the space equivalent of a wallet?

P.S. …I've carried hundreds in my wallet for weeks on end because I was to lazy to visit an ATM as soon as my roommates paid me back for being the one to deposit our rent checks. Quite a few times, actually…

@ Incentive: I disagree with the tagline on the Incentive. It's more like "Welcome to Far Out There, where 'Let's All Get Along' Works About As Often As It Does In Reality".

Darius Drake: ...so pretty much the same, then :)

dylgramac: True, the whole idea behind this sort thing would be that it uses some kind of super duper bitcoin encripted whatever to give the convenience of electronic currency WITHOUT actually having to directly access your personal whatever... I just like the idea that something so obviously designed for privacy would still have such an attention-grabbing design feature. It's like having a VPN where, every time you load up a new website, a voice loudly announces the address over your speakers.

@ Blitz: It'll work... if you put the effort in to actually get them to work together, have a group of people who don't know each other and don't have a reason to screw the others over, or, very rarely, if you're extremely lucky. Or the reason for the trouble is one person being (hopefully reasonably) angry about something, and you can placate them without sacrificing something important to you.

So, yeah, pretty close.

(The above, actually storyline comic is actually showing "Can't We All Get Along" actually working)
