Re: [arcology] Ordinary Mail
- In the resort community where I live, one of the requirements to get the
zoning approved required that all people would have to get their mail at the
post office. Sure is fun some days now that we have over 5000 people living
here. Real traffic jams!!

To be very short: I think pneumatic delivery systems are not cost-
It can eassily cause mail to get stuck, packages will not pass
through this system so we still need a postoffice for them and I
think that this system only encourages lazyness.
When I consider every issue with arcology, one of the highest
priorities is employement. A bunch of postman is also employement.
It's not much, but unschooled people can take these jobs perhaps.
Pneumatic delivery also asks for a lot of energy. How else can we
pump objects for a long distance?
The idea is good and fun. But I personally don't think that it'll
work in such a large building
