Self-driving cars disrupt a lot of folks, this list, may surprise you.

Yesterday, I went to think tank event in Palo Alto on self-driving cars, at SVForum with experts from all over tech, auto, and investment space, it was concluded by most that self-driving cars will start to roll out in 5-10 years. Car sharing and ride sharing is teaching us, we don't need to "own" cars to get where we need to go, this paves the road, for autonomous vehicles to enter society.

Here's an (in)complete list of who's disrupted:

-Taxis compete with Uber, Google, Apple self-driving cars. Ride sharing was just the first blow.

-Ride sharing drivers at Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, BlaBlaCar will be disrupted as autonomous cars do a safer job at lower cost.

-Local couriers, like TaskRabbit, Instacart and bike messengers will be impacted.

-Mid range and long range transportation and delivery services would be impacted as local delivery becomes automated.

-Retailers may see a change in foot traffic as people order goods to be delivered to their homes by driverless cars.

-Auto and life insurance should be impacted, due to fewer accidents and the introduction of per-mile-based insurance.

-Paramedics may be impacted if victims choose self-driving cars to whisk them to ER for less than severe injuries.

-Car ownership could dwindle. Self-driving cars means fewer cars will be needed, as they’re efficiently routed as needed.

-Airbnb may benefits as urban areas convert garage spaces into living areas for short term stays.

-The parking industry could suffer, as lots are converted to other uses.

-Parking fines and local taxes could dwindle with fewer cars on road and robotic efficiency.

-Radio and podcasts could become less popular, as people play video games and watch videos in the self-driving rides.

-Short distance airlines could be suffer, as people choose to take a relaxing trip in a mobile living room.

-Communities or attractions not connected by rail could prosper as people easily travel there for business or pleasure.

-Auto repair could be impacted as self-driving cars automatically head for maintenance without the driver or owner present.

-Auto manufacturers are disrupted, as people use ride-sharing apps to summon vehicles on demand, in lieu of ownership.

-Hotels and motels could be affected as families are able to sleep in the comfort of a self-driven vehicle on the way to their destination.

Leave a comment, below, on who else might be disrupted.

In addition to Tesla, Google is building cars, Uber is building cars, and Apple is building cars. Silicon Valley is the new motor city.

Here come the robots
 
Wow, the Boston Dynamics team is doing some pretty remarkable things -- 

Introducing Spot: Spot is a four-legged robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot weighs about 160 lbs.

If you've used Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, oDesk, Kickstarter, or Lending Club, you've participated in the Collaborative Economy, ever wondered what's powering it behind the shiny user interface on the app? The Collaborative Economy is an economic model in which people use commonly available ...

It would appear that your cons center mostly around living in SF. IMHO I would never even consider living there. (for the reasons you mention and more)
Yet, I work in the heart of silicon valley.

I live/own affordable property in the gorgeous Santa Cruz Mountains. My commute consists of driving 10 minutes to a bus stop. Where I board an express bus that drops me, literally at my place of employment front door. The bus has free Wi-Fi, so I get a head-start on my day on the way in, and catch up on Netflix on the way home.
My advice, you're doing it wrong, stop that...

WSJ: Weekend Read: Liberals and Conservatives Both Love and Loathe the Sharing Economy http://blogs.wsj.com/accelerators/2015/02/20/weekend-read-liberal-and-conservatives-both-love-and-loathe-the-sharing-economy/
Jeremiah Owyang, founder of Crowd Companies: When it comes to the emerging sharing economy, the only thing that is clear is that there is no definitive ideological line. Both liberals and conservatives see aspects of emerging companies and business models that they like and dislike. After all, in our view, liberals love job opportunities for the unemployed and disadvantaged, like online freelancer roles that enable many to work anywhere, anytime...
