what's good in the %hood?

As if it doesn’t matter where I go.

Technology connects the world. As long as yo have an internet connection, there exists a space which you can access regardless of your physical location. Almost like a telepathic meeting space for people and their information. It allows you to always have someplace familiar close by, someplace you can go to see friendly faces you know and love, and act as if nothing is all that different from normal.

It’s strange how simple some things can become when you try to represent them visually. It doesn’t even have to be very accurate to reality or anything, a quick sketch alone can be enough to get your wheels turning in just the right way.
