I've been looking at some of his articles since voidtalker posted the link to his channel. Most of what he does has already been hashed to death by many other people.... but he does have some interesting ideas tangential to the main topic. Some stuff I've been thinking about...

For instance, one cannot see these concepts, and still believe that only colonizing habitable worlds should be the best option in game, nor that materials free for the harvesting, in great quantities, are useless. This guy makes a strong case for being able to gain 'wealth' from all the junk floating about within our solar system, yet in the game, this is not possible, so...
