I propose that the General Conference on Weights and Measures establish the "Gibson Radius" (the high fidelity simulation boundary, currently estimated at 23.3 billion kilometers) as a constant. Sort of a bookend to the Planck Length :)

PS I'll settle for it being added to the Star Trek canon.

You know, in just over 2 years, we will have another one of those edge cases, when the series Steve though was "just going to be a few episodes", will suffer an epock failure, and will run out of available unique number space in the naming convention. Then Steve will either have to change to a 4 digit system, or switch to hexadecimal notation for the episodes, depending on just how he is set up on the back end.

Perhaps 4 digits, or is it every byte is sacred.....

The problem is that "other" Gibson (the sci-fi author). How to differentiate the tribute?
