Work Thoughts

There is so much talk on startup unicorns. In online advertising, we have mini-corns: they deal with x Billions of ad requests a day/week/month and make $$$ Millions of revenue, and there are several of them.

I was at a Big Data meeting and the discussion was about how to use Urban Sciences data to design and build better cities for the next few decades/century. I suggested that instead over the next few decades we should improve personal transportation so that we dont need high density urban areas and that we unlearn what humans learned a long time ago to congregate and find real estate where  first food production, and then industrial production concentrated. I suggested we forego the idea of owning personal real estate, just move from place to place, house to house when needed.
