What is Cyberia?Some readers who have looked at my blogger profile might be asking "what on earth is the Cyberian Broadcasting Cooperative?" The question you are really asking is "what on earth is Cyberia?"
Cyberia was founded in 1997 as a project by a 17 year-old high school kid named Ken Kerns. He wanted to see if it would be possible to create a unique political culture on the internet. At first, it was taken over by a bunch of college kids who made it their occupation with which to cure boredom, of which I was one.
Over the years, the simulation has matured as we have. Some of us, myself included, have gone away from it at times as life directed (in truth, after all, it is a simulation…a game). Something ticked, though, as it is still around.
Cyberia has gone through some tough times of late and I was asked, with the understanding that I have a limited amount of time to do so, to come and help lead a revival of sorts. If any of my readers are interested in joining Cyberia, just click on the link above. It has always been my opinion that the place could use more conservatives, but the more people who join, the less load on us old veterans of the place. Younger folks interested in political systems from around the world might want to give Cyberia a try.
