You have been placed in charge of ICT implementation for the brand new Mars space colony.

You have been placed in charge of ICT implementation for the brand new Mars space colony. There are a lot of people, but unfortunately your budget, infrastructure, and knowledge capital are extremely limited since all the colonists come from debtor prisons back on Earth.

a) What sort of ICTs are of immediate and practical economic use to your constituents? Give some examples of old tech, new tech, and fictional tech you want to have on hand.

b) Which ones do you throw out as space junk? Defend your decisions to the colony members, who want a big-screen plasma TV.
