El Centro Conmatizque
In compliance with one of one of the founding decrees of Rio Cristal, in 2130, the appointed “History Managers” of the Central District pooled computing resources to create an exhaustive library of public memories. Modeled in part after Borges’s Library of Babel, from the beginning, ECC’s goal as an institution has been to preserve all local stories, myths, half truths, and tall tales across all conceivable media in order to preserve regional legacies on an increasingly inhospitable planet. Today, we continue this noble mission, providing all visitors to and residents of Rio Cristal with direct access to the data of yesteryear.
“One of the oldest buildings in the city, El Centro Conmatzique is located in the heart of Rio Cristal, in Building 2 along Canal Six, east of the H-E-B Skyrise. When you arrive at the door leading to the airlock, wave your palm over the stained-glass orb to gain access to the entrance lift.”
