It may be that I’m wrong. That in 10 years, all the design work will center around services and systems. That we’ll all be strategists and the detailed product design work will be done by algorithms and robots.

Right-wingers moaned about the whole thing being a waste of money, ugly, useless and getting in the way of cars.

Left-wingers whined about how they should really be planting trees instead of steel things, and how offensive it was to even be discussing such things, given what’s going on in Gaza.
