Spiral Cloud Publishing
The publishing company of "Spiral Cloud Publishing" is an incorporated Creative Cloud which was originally established to allow Borealian citizens to self-publish videos and writing into the Borealian Intranet. Spiral Cloud was founded in 1645 GE as a way to allocate content into the form of a weekly digest, featuring various creators. It received special social credit allocation from the Council of Faculties of Borealis and uses this credit pool to employ people looking to fulfill their social quotas, which are a requirement for advancement in most faculties. The faculties, of course, are university faculties, since Borealis is one gargantuan university city.
A Head In the Clouds
Get Your ContentSpiral Cloud Publishing is cleared for pushing their publications into public data access terminals. Here, citizens can quickly assimilate the newest creative digests from SCP using one of the currently popular methods of fast machine-human information transfer:
EADIEADI is a Enzyme Accelerated Data Injection, which encodes the to-be-transferred information in genetic memory to be added to the recipient's information bladder, an organ that every Borealian possesses thanks to the mandatory gene editing policy of the city. The amount of space required is usually minuscule due to the high compression rate and information density of genetic code, so the injection is quick and painless, and special messenger enzymes speed up the encoding process significantly, meaning the new content can be accessed via the recipient's information bladder within minutes. People will often be seen next to public data access terminals with blank stares just after the newest SCP digest has been released, a side-effect of accessing one's information bladder, since memory decoding from the genetic storage is far slower albeit more reliably accurate than cerebral memory. The satirical comparison to mindless drones or automatons of these people, enjoying their content, has been made by many contemporary comedians and satirists in Borealis. However, the Public Health and Safety Commission has noted that the same jokes and critiques have resurfaced periodically whenever new information technology has become widespread in Borealis's past.
