If I’m at home, then there is probably public radio playing in the background. We are blessed here in Austin, Texas to have KUT – a truly terrific local public radio station. Last week they aired a story in cooperation with “Texas Monthly” based on their May ideas issue. Ideas to change the world.
“If you were going to change the world, you could pick a worse place to start than Texas. We approached dozens of Texas thinkers and got ideas from the sublime to the futuristic.”
The segment with Richard “Lord British” Garriott is my favorite as he envisions an over head tram network of personal pods to shuffle people around Austin. He’s even considering putting money behind the idea! (fast-forward to 7:30).
