Future Shock

The Minneapolis Star Tribune had a surprisingly insightful analysis of a recent talk at the U on "driverless cars": Streetscapes: Driverless cars will have big impact on city streets.My favorite line was the wrap-up, "The losers? Those in the automotive industry who ignore the disruption headed its way; those living in remote locations who may have to pay higher rates to still drive a car, and those who deny that the American love of the automobile will ever end, something people said 100 years ago about their horses. As the Beatles put it: 'Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight.'"
