Goodbye Free Advice Berlin

A Facebook group I used to be an administrator for was run with a simple democratic approach. A rogue admin tricked us into allowing another admin to join our group, and just after we realised what had occurred, myself and the other elected admin were unexpectedly removed without any consultation with the rest of the administration/moderation team. All group moderators chose to leave within hours of this occurring. The following are screenshots from the fallout of that.

My vision of 2030

A debate on Facebook with Mauritius Seegar made me offer my own opinion on the world in 2030. The debate was based on a presentation by Tony Seba in Oslo Norway, where he suggested that all vehicles (or at least most) would be electric and fully automated by 2030.

by 2030 all vehicles (cars, buses, trucks) will be electric, self-driving and ride sharing – Tony Seba 2016

My estimate, is that 20 to 80% of all cars will be electric and fully automated by 2030, but that a lot of countries will lag long behind on the implementation of automated cars, because of finances, entrenched market forces, apathy, legal issues, distrust of automated vehicles and existing fleets still being usable. I suspect some countries will totally switch over and never look back though.

Note for future me: This was based on about 5 mins of thought whilst geeking out at Herman Schulz.
