I worked as a TVC on the Google campus in Mountain View for a while. One of my first impressions was that this was the baseline quality-of-life we as a species should work towards: transportation, food, sanitation, etc.

I feel like it's a kind of "greatest common denominator" if you will, not a utopia but close enough for the constraint "must exist in real life". We can work out all the details in the fullness of time, but in the immediate future (I think) we should concentrate on solving the easy, obvious stuff:

* a decent place to live

* healthy food (inexpensive)

* carbon-neutral energy

* health care

We have the resources and technology to do that (I believe.)
