A section for Colonial News Bulletin staff or guests to voice their concerns and opinions on past, present and future affairs. A more civil way to duel with words rather than the vibrosword.
OP/ED: The Colonial Congress Vote
Everyone has been spending a great deal of time discussing the impending votes about legal rights for artificial beings, and which corporate power should be running the majority of New Gyr’s infrastructure. But there’s one […]
SUBMISSION: Opinion: What Does None Mean

The following is the personal opinion and commentary of Jacek Regolith. It does not necessaraly represent the views of the Colonial News Bulletin
At the beginning of the Silent Conversation meeting, the Speaker announced that New Gyr must “Figure out where to go next”.
You don’t even have to post this, but I just gotta say, DID YOU SEE THAT CONCERT LAST NIGHT? RFCB just smashed my expectations! And that ukulele. And I didn’t even know that much kite […]

A Statement from Bellicose Penumbra
There are a lot of things I don’t care about. I don’t care about my homeworld. I don’t care about politics or history. I don’t care about philosophy and ‘traditional’ culture. I do care about […]
Placebo weighs in to effect election
I’m just a musician. I’ve been just a musician for thirty years now. I walked away from everything else – – I mean, I fucking ran – – because I was terrified of what my […]
Black Hole Of Information
Is there a massive black hole at the center of the galaxy that had the Ancients running scared? A black hole big enough that it might be related to, or even the reason behind the […]

Letter to the Editor: The Real Targets in the Android Rights Debate – Augments
Dear Editor, I think many people in the Android/AI rights debate are missing what this is ACTUALLY about. Let’s think for a moment: What’s the definition of an Android? We don’t call a robot arm […]
Letter to the Editor: Response to A Soul Makes A Person
The following letter is a response to the writer of A Soul Makes a Person, Not Artificial Intelligence: There are two simple questions you should consider. One: Do all living people have souls? Surely you have […]
Letter to the Editor: A Soul Makes a Person, not Artificial Intelligence
I remember a time when Robotics research held the lofty goal of easing human labor and creating better tools, not fashioning “people”. Now, it seems, the Galaxy has gone mad and we are asking ourselves if we want to give human status to machines – to tools, mind you.
Letter to the Editor: Not to Split Hairs over Splitting Tables …
All due respect to your last submitter, but they are so very, very wrong.

Speaker Ryf-Av, Silent Conversation: Call to End the Blockade of Agerre
Each morning I wake up and keep to a ritual. Shower. Dress. Coffee and a smoke outside the newsroom. Breakfast occurs somewhere in there, along with some chatting and the start of the workday.

The G9-45, Enterios’s latest and greatest in un-capped, fully autonomous androids, debuted in a limited sale on Ottsalia last week. Leveraging the most adaptable AI ever produced, it is capable of handling nearly all tasks formerly requiring a human user – completely eliminating the need for human labor, if you can afford the price tag. Though organic staff members may still oversee them in some workplaces, they will likely soon be replaced by robots.
Baryosi Comma is Pointless Punctuation
There has been blood spilled. This war has spread to nearly all worlds and has resulted in dozens of duels. And now, dear reader, the war has reached New Gyr and our own very newsroom. Rest assured that I will stand with you on the side of that which is correct, which all peoples can agree is good and just. We will stand opposed to the Baryosi Comma!
