I finally, after 15 years, got a tour of Xerox Parc. So many amazing things that impact our lives have come out of this building. I got to see the first mouse, the first scanner and the first Ethernet cable. Way cool.
Thanks to my friend P.H. Mullen whose company, PowerCloud, is based there.

The operating percent of a car will go from 4% to that 96%. But back to my leading statement: there are unintended consequences. Parked cars will be a relic from the past. What happens to car insurance prices if a driver is no longer part of the equation? And if cars are receiving 20 times more actual use, that would imply that there would be 20 times less cars sold. This is the kind of disruptive change that can reshape the automotive industry. The recent GM/Chrysler bailout may have been for naught.
