It’s an issue of making sure that when someone’s only or best option to get to work is a bike, that they have the option to ride it,” he said. “When the president talks about ladders of opportunity, that’s what he’s talking about. Because sometimes that ladder might be a bike path to a new job, or a new school.

Daring Fireball: Working Backwards to the Technology

One of the things I’ve always found is that you’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards to the technology. You can’t start with the technology and try to figure out where you’re going to try to sell it.

California Senator Mark Deaulnier’s proposed bicycle tax doesn’t have an amount – that will be left to local jurisdictions who may wish to impose such a tax – but let’s use Colorado Springs’ modest $4 bicycle sales tax as an example. If cyclists pay our “fair share,” the sales tax on a small automobile such as the Prius should come in at a cool $154,000. The Lincoln Navigator and other vehicles with twice the weight of the Prius have a sales tax sixteen times higher, which comes to $2.5 million.

A little think on the small digital device’s physical context, and it’s relationship to all the other forms of information in the physical world.
The smart phone is small when compared to everything out there, but it’s information goes deep.
