Many transport experts genuinely laughed at it and did the usual "stupid tech bros, step away from our expert field with your toy, it's much more nuanced and complicated than that" dismissal. GTFS is now completely dominant. No other standard really matters. Why? Simplicity.

RT @thomasforth
This is the ultimate UK complicated solution. And whenever we need it do something more, we make it more complicated. One size can fit all if you make it complicated enough. The standard is almost impossible to work with, it slows down innovation in public transport enormously.

This summer, Rotterdam will allow all businessesβ€”from restaurants to hairdressersβ€”to convert the parking spaces in front of their building into retail space. The owner may build their own deck, or borrow a free one from the municipality. No permit needed.

Hm, I guess I need a better vnc implementation so I can also pan and zoom

The trend we are seeing toward remote work as the standard at large tech companies will have downstream ramifications for governments hiring tech talent. Attracting good people to public service has always been hard. Govs that lack remote work policies will find it even harder.

If you can watch only one 1.5 minute long clip from a comedy show that absolutely nails why building more & wider roads will always cost billions while never, ever succeeding at β€œsolving” traffic congestion... watch this one. Then share it. @ABCTV

RT @thomasforth
So just at the moment there's lots of modelling about UK airport expansion at the moment. Lots of juicy "assuming a 60 year value rather than the green book 30, because obviously air travel will grow forever" assumptions to get the numbers up... while there are no planes flying.

A good example of the human brain using prior knowledge & mental models to fill in gaps of a low-res, noisy sensory input. This works well most times, but can fail on occasion. Useful to think about for AI development and for spread of misinformation on the internet.
