Predicting the future has never been a strong suit for me, although with my past experience in IP PBX technology and 25 years of work experience in special effects, sales and marketing, I have seen a huge advancement in computer technology specifically relating to telecommunications, film and the transportation industries.
If you would have asked me what I thought about sharing cars, and bikes five years ago at the local race track while instructing, I would have said “What!” But with computer advancement we can see huge cities like New York take on a very different feel to them with mass access to the flow of real-time information, communications and transportation.

Don’t get me wrong I love the automobile, and there will always be a place in my heart and my wallet for travelling around by car, but why not take advantage of the technology and infrastructure available today?
