scientists breaking out
27, 2002 - by Bimbo Nobrain Loveless
some while the Sims Science has operated very closely with the SimCity
Social Services on the SimLOOK project and community surveys. Due to intricate
circumstances, they had to split up.
Science's spokes person, Claire Brybrey, is busy these days. She is the
head of a successful organization, and besides working on the group's many
projects, she is also the one who meets the press and who keep in touch
with their sponsors. Recent events have made her job a little
allowed to meet her in her office at the SC Social Services' main division
in SimCity, downtown. The location could hardly have been worse, because
her current employer actually is the one causing her problems concerning
Sims Science these days.
Services used to be Sims Science's main sponsor on the SimLOOK project,
now they has withdrawn, stating they will no longer be associated with
the project. How will this effect Sims Science and it's projects?
we strongly depended on their support economically, and will of course
be forced to look for other sponsors to keep the SimLOOK project running.
The project is special because it is our largest, and costs rather much.
The house is built and the account is covering it's daily needs such as
food and eventually to replace repossessed items. But there is also a studio
here in SimCity where we need to pay technicians and rent all the cameras
and such, to be able to follow the development inside the SimLOOK house.
there any chance the project must be closed?
really, but it might get seriously delayed, due to the circumstances.
main reason why SCSS withdrew from your main project, is the situation
at the SimLOOK house. They state there is too much violence making it difficult
for them to support it. I've heard there is an anti science group under
establishing, FSAS. Has this group anything to do with SCSS' decision?
as far as I know, but I am aware that group's founder, Ms Moulino, did
ask for a meeting with SCSS. I do not know whether that meeting ever took
place, I would naturally not have been invited.
and also several others involved with the Sims Science are employees at
the SCSS, how will the new situation effect your jobs?
of us have already signed out from SCSS, we would not be able to relay
to the situation, being loyal to our employer during days, and turning
our back to it in the evenings. I will leave my job as soon as other arrangements
can be done. Also Mr. McStoticks and Bertha Fairweld will quit their jobs
shortly in order to give 100% of themselves to science.
about the surveys that Mr. McStoticks used to run here on the Simmerville
web site. Will they go on?
course they will. In fact, Mr. McStoticks always did those surveys with
Sims Science's support although he worked at the SCSS, and he has now officially
joined Sims Science.
the web master of Simmerville web site, depending on contributions from
both the Sims Science and the Social Services, it's hard for me to applaud
either party's move in this case. But, given the situation, and if Sims
Science manage to raise enough funds for their projects, I get the impression
that their break out from SimCity Social Services might turn out to something
positive in the long run.
