This blog takes a good outlook on the future of our transportation system. The impact of driverless cars goes well beyond some convenience for the daily commute. It will reshape our cities and entire industries.

Worth a read!
 
I think that this article does a good job of describing what the world will look like once (once, not if) autonomous cars have taken over completely, and the many ways in which this will make all of our lives a lot better. (Saved lives, saved time, less pollution, less cost to each of us individually, etc) However, I think he grossly overestimates the speed of the transition: by 2025 I'd expect to see large-scale experiments rolling out, but I wouldn't expect to reach the final equilibrium point he's describing until 2050 at the soonest.

I think that he also underestimates the violence with which these changes will be resisted. As he points out, several existing industries are likely to be cratered, most notably car manufacture (autonomous cars serving people on-demand could be active 95% of the time, versus 4% of the time for passenger cars today; that's a 24x reduction in the number of cars needed per person) and professional drivers. We're already seeing tremendous resistance by vested interests in the existing taxi business to even ordinary competition like Uber; what will happen when it starts to become clear to them that the entire business is about to go away, never to return? 

In this regard, I think that we can draw useful lessons from the collapse of the longshoreman industry with the rise of containerized shipping. On the US' West Coast, strong longshore unions negotiated a phased shutdown with shipping companies; on the East Coast, weak unions spent more time fighting and undercutting each other than negotiating, and the net result was a serious collapse of all shipping to those ports, with the longshoremen bearing the brunt of it. Marc Levinson's book The Box has an interesting discussion of this. I suspect that similar phenomena will be seen here.

But even more so than with the transition to containerized shipping, the transition to autonomous vehicles is likely inevitable: the advantages are too large and too widespread, and the disadvantages too limited, for groups to successfully be able to prevent it for their own interest.
I have spent quite a bit of time lately thinking about autonomous cars, and I wanted to summarize my current thoughts and predictions. Most people - experts included - seem to think that the transi...

I could definitely benefit from some decluttering. I'm just not sure I will get to this level.

Declutter your life, declutter your mind

"If you have ever cleared your desk one morning before working, you’ll know the feeling of tranquility and peace this can give you. I found that that is exactly what happens when I got rid of most things I owned, apart from the crucial essentials."

"Professor Alice Dreger is no newcomer to the study of human sexuality. In [..] 2015 she published Galileo's Middle Finger, which covers controversies in academic medicine, specifically those related to sexuality.

When the author and bioethicist's son invited her to sit in on his abstinence-focused sexual education class, she knew she was stumbling into a situation ripe for live-tweeting."

Taken together with the ability to transfer money by mail Google could replace internet banking with their new service Pony Mail. It is yet another step for Google into professionalizing their services.

The automotive industry stole most of the public places in the cities from us... The streets. Why did we let them?

I have always been of the opinion that streets belong to pedestrians first and other participants in traffic second. It might be time to claim them back. Walking should be free and not meticulously regulated.
 
Your attitude towards people who walk across streets wherever they want was manufactured in the 1920s by the automobile industry and its allies. So...do you feel manipulated?
In the 1920s, auto groups redefined who owned the city street.

Healthcare is lagging behind other industries with regards to their IT infrastructure and support. Increasing pressure to provide transparency and flexibility in reporting will require new approaches to their IT.

At least the article mentions some of the biggest obstacles to "lean IT" in the medical industry: regulatory compliance, vendors and clinical devices, and a huge lack of end-user training, focus and support.

Regulations and the structure of healthcare in the US guarantees that the people making the decisions in hospitals are not the physicians.  They have to be separate legal entities, even if the doctors "work" for the hospital.  This guarantees that vendors don't have to build products that cater to the physician end-users much if at all.  Other regulations that prevent hospitals from benefiting from approaches in other industries are privacy regulations, and the need to protect against enormous lawsuits.

Medical device vendors have a way to go in terms of communications and standards, guaranteeing that each new medical device (even from the same vendor) requires custom integration and implementation. 

Add to that mix a reimbursement landscape that is filled with uncertainty - any time a new "tweak" is introduced to healthcare policy it means that hospitals and physicians get paid less.

I don't envy hospital administrators and their IT staffs - they have been dealt a bad hand, and the game keeps changing.

As most US airports Dallas makes for a horrible passenger experience for transferring between flights, but this one is especially bad. Avoid at all costs. While automated immigration was a positive surprise, the entire airport is a functional mess. For transfers you need to leave the secure area and go through security again. To do so you need to follow very unclear sign posts which are in 50% of the cases directly contradictory to the statements of the staff (e.g express transfer should go in the line with crewmembers according to the signposts but not to the staff member right next to it). The staff is rude, lacks empathy and flexibility in thinking and is overall simply unprofessional but arrogant based on the power they have based on their 'uniform'. Worst, they are generally completely useless when asked a question (like estimated time to the gate) After separating my family at immigration we were told to wait for the others away from the immigration area. As our flight connection was very tight and our missing family member did not show up after a significant wait, had to escalate the situation by two levels before we were even allowed to check were our missing family member was. It turned out she was lead down a different route and we had waited in vain. Had we followed the instructions as given, we would have missed our flight. Overall, the mental rigidity of the staff makes the entire experience so appalling, I'd advice to avoid Dallas Fort Worth airport at all costs.

Great airport. Very fast security and border control. Fast luggage delivery and short walking distances. Frequent monorail connects gate sectors. Well connected to Zurich main station and Zurich Stadelhofen by train (12min) or tram (25min).

If you like waiting for 6 months for a reservation which then is at 6.30 for your dinner... If you like being seated next to the kitchen even though you are the first guests to arrive and being denied your request to be reseated without being given a reason... If you like being stared at during dinner by a whole group of the waiting staff whose dress code elicits unpleasant associations to the gang from Clockwork Orange... If you like being rushed through the courses of your dinner... If you like sommeliers that do not make recommendations but only state what is already on the menu... If you like a head waiter with unpolished shoes clicking his pen next to your table frenetically throughout your dinner.. If you like to leave a restaurant hungry... If you like to spend nearly 100 quid a head... ...then you should give Dabbous a try to figure out what the buzz is all about. I would describe the cuisine as 'interesting' but will surely not return.
