Simplifying the site

This post is the counterpart to the previous wherein I outlined the changes I have made to the concept of my study area. This post states what I am doing to content posts and subject metadata to realise the changes to the scenario.

As luck would have it, not much change is required on the site. I will now list all the posts, categories and tags I need to alter. I will update this post to record when changes are made.

Workplaces are co-operative and non-hierarchical. Universities are integrated into society and the economy. Small, regional banks make their money by investing in new products and services rather than playing the stock exchange. This infrastructure has been exported to the former Romohai Empire.

What else though, have the Romohai contributed? The following are perhaps worth a mention:

Planet Tekuo

My study area lies on the planet Tekuo. Tekuo is a parallel Earth that has been diverging from our world since the end of the Jurassic Age, some 150 million years ago.

Naturally, the planet’s dimensions are the same as ours, its year the same length, and its present is our present.
