I have thought about this sort of thing for the better part of 20 years.  The majority of people, policy makers included, don't seem to have a clue as to what's coming.   Street lighting, road paint, the need for less road maintenance, less gasoline consumption, etc, etc.
After years of futuristic speculation, the self-driving vehicle may be just around the bend. We speak to a lead engineer at Volvo who wants to take driving out of your hands. And we ask about the ethical concerns driving on autopilot and how to integrate these cars into our cities.

I came across this blog? about older style homes.  It is full of old plans, and illustrations and articles about how to style your home after something from the first third of the 20th century.

To paraphrase the maitre'd from The Meaning of Life, "Finally, Monsieur - a wafer thin victory"
British Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives have secured enough seats to form a majority government. Results from Thursday's election show that the Conservatives won at least 326 of the House of Commons' 650 seats, enough to form a slim majority government.

And now, the pleasant thought for the day
Have you ever described a wine you were drinking as fruity, sweet, or having a hint of coconut? Well, congratulations, because you were totally drinking a component of koala urine.

So now Canada needs three amendments to its constitution - 
1) No Government of Canada may prorogue the House of Commons in order to avoid a confidence vote.
2) Laws may not be passed that retroactively make illegal actions legal.
3) Laws may not be passed that retroactively conceal the illegal actions of any person or group.

Hmm.  Does lightning make this Teslapunk the same way gears make something Steampunk?
