Futurum Impotens

Oklahoma City - Submitted by apisgirl on Jul 18 2013

It's 2025 and Norman Oklahoma is now what SF was in the 70's. A mecca of culture and creativity, all of the artists started to move to the region in the housing bust of the late 2010's, due to cheapened property prices in the midwest, and heightened living costs on the coasts.

Due to this upsurge of create types, and the fact that many people here having already lived by the DIY ethos due to generations of poverty and "making ends meet", people have taken to building things themselves without asking for government's permission.

These artists use their tools oftentimes to rebuild homes wiped away by the yearly surge of tornadic activity. Powerlines have just recently all gone underground to avoid the dangers up-ground lines present.

Groups of people will oftentimes gather up and collect their tools and skills to help out neighbors in need. This is the heart of America, and they show it in their labor.

NOW it's your turn...

I think the resulting migration of fluctuating housing prices is really interesting. I'd love to learn more about how people decide, as a group, about the next place to go. What makes this 'home' for all these people?
