A great article about robo-cars

On Friday, had a funny discussion with our largest investor regarding the value of parking spaces.

His joke was that, when I’ve got loads of parking, I tell him how valuable parking is, and when I’m under-parked, I start talking about Uber.

I’m not admitting that’s true, but I did tell him that I think that, over the long term, parking is over-valued. He agreed.

And here’s where we’re both coming from: As we’ve discussed here before, we’re 5-15 years from having networks of autonomous cars available through aps like Uber.

The most recent issue of Mother Jones has a wonderful article exploring the implications of this shift for society, in general, and urban planning, in particular. It’s a great read.
