OOOOOO! I remember them! Yes! Nice to see Doc Sauvage in IB! Zahir 17:07, 6 Oct 2005 (PDT)

How about "Doc Sauvageau" ? (an actual surname here)--Marc Pasquin 17:40, 6 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I like that...but hm....I'll have to think about it, Marc. :) BoArthur

While you're at it--one thing that Doc Savage himself lacked was some kind of archenemy. He only faced the same villain twice once (er...okay, that was a real awkward way of putting it): Johnny Sunlight. How about giving his IB counterpart a recurring nemesis worthy of his steel? Perhaps IB's equivalent of Fu Manchu? Zahir 10:02, 7 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Okay, I am sooooo giggling over "Wu Mandu." But I was under the impression that in IB the internet doesn't really exist yet, hence no Ebay. Or am I wrong? Zahir 17:51, 7 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Something else occurred to me. Did Doc Sauvage have a radio series? Or were there movie serials of his adventures? Zahir 07:01, 8 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Haven't we established that only a limited form of the Internet is available in Ireland and Kemr? Zahir 13:11, 13 October 2005 (PDT)
Ebay is many years away yet. No infrastructure or support. Keep in mind that IB's interconnected webworks are not worldwide, are primarily the domain of academia, science and government (this is changing as uni. students gain increasing access, but still there are no PCs to take the thing home). Even if you could display an Ebay page, I don't think anyone's yet thought out how such an international commercial enterprise would function (jurisdictional issues, VAT collection, etc). Don't even dream of Paypal either. Credit cards are not widespread but are certainly not unknown; e-commerce is not on the horizon yet. I wouldn't be surprised if the webs don't get used in IB for inventory liquidation or trade. You know, one lab has to sell its Quasitron Mark IV and another sees the advert. Probably something like Craigslist. [PB]
