Think about cities

Benedict Evans auf seinem Blog:

Cars and second order consequences

There are two foundational technology changes rolling through the car industry at the moment; electric and autonomy.
Both electric and autonomy have profound consequences beyond the car industry itself. Half of global oil production today goes to gasoline, and removing that demand will have geopolitical as well as industrial consequences. Over a million people are killed in car accidents every year around the world, mostly due to human error, and in a fully autonomous world all of those (and many more injuries) will also go away.
