The Year In Review:

In 2018, the Starholder timeline is defined by significant advancements and shifts within the technological and socio-political arenas, vividly captured through the developments at Ivanpah and the rising influence of the ‘Effective Technologists.’

The Ivanpah update of 2018 marks a decade since the inception of the Ivanpah supercollider, an endeavor that has not only propelled forward scientific innovation but also tensioned the dynamics between old and new powers in the heart of California’s desert. This period has been marked by a mix of groundbreaking discoveries and a shroud of secrecy that perennially encompasses Ivanpah, sparking both intrigue and concern within the global community about the implications of these advancements .

Simultaneously, the ‘Effective Technologists,’ a burgeoning faction within Silicon Valley, have secured their positions as pivotal players in the technology sector by 2018. They champion a libertarian ethos that favors deregulation and privatization, challenging conventional power structures and proposing a new model where technological leadership equates to societal authority. This group’s ascent is not just a business success story but a critical evolution in how power might operate in a technologically dependent society, where data and digital infrastructure become arenas of both innovation and conflict .

Together, these progressions in 2018 encapsulate a pivotal year where the boundaries of technology and its governance are being redefined. The narratives of Ivanpah and the ‘Effective Technologists’ illustrate a future in flux, dominated by both the opportunities of uncharted scientific territories and the challenges of new socio-political landscapes that such technologies engender. This dual storyline underscores the transformative impact of technology on societal structures, governance, and personal identities within the Starholder timeline.
