Important thinking about the future of AVs and cities. This article I just published really is a must-read for everyone who lives in ciites, cares about climate, or the future of work.

Intimate mother-daughter talk about raising children in a warming planet. Happy (Thoughtful!) Earthday.
“When I chose to have children, I didn’t think about...what’s their life going to be like when they’re 25?“

Enjoy.
I started Zipcar in 2000, armed with three beliefs: people would be willing to share cars instead of owning them because the economics makes sense; a platform leveraging new technologies would make...

why connect cars are a critical lever multipurposing excess capacity to deliver smart livable cities. And why my new company Veniam is really PeersInc
The best way to acquire massive amounts of urban data as well as expand urban wireless coverage may be to connect all the vehicles moving around the city.

The owner of this hotel is incredibly nice. He goes the extra mile. Great price/value. I lived on this street for two years. It is an excellent location. I've stayed here two times. Once was a double on the 3rd floor, newly renovated and great. Second time I was on the 2nd floor, not newly renovated and less nice. But it sill seemed worthwhile. Breakfast included and as I say, really nice people.
