You can also have a convoy of 1 manned truck with n driverless truck that play follow the leader. You end up with a train model on the road infrastructure.

You can already do that with a road train.

Once I heard Marissa Mayer recount that she asked Sergey Brin where he got the idea of doing such a minimalist design for Google. Sergey's answer was: I don't do HTML.

There's similar quotes in an interview with Larry and Sergey in "Designing Interactions" by Bill Moggridge. Sergey explains (in a lot more detail than I do here) that they kept the front page simple because they didn't want to spend too much time on the front page. Only afterwards did they realise how powerful that was, and they decided to keep things off there as much as possible.

Contracted vs grew is still in opposite direction and significant, but I doubt those numbers are right, they should both be growing.

After the new $10M in cash it is $20M/3,000,000, so they are worth $6.66/share

The formula by Sivers he refers too seems to be the best approximation to value idea. I still like to put emphasis on execution instead of idea, since almost everybody I talk with that value idea is in fact doing some analysis paralysis and will start working when they get that "great idea".

Cool recap of all the aspect you want to monitor while building your business. While giving you the way to not drown in too much information by focusing on one.

In retrospect it is obvious, but so hard. I always wanted to focus on the metrics where we were doing well or where we knew what to do next.

This subject was presented in a book I read recently, along with many interesting aspect of how our mind works. The book is definitely worth reading, it was "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman.

I wonder if it can explain the fact that I don't fall or bump into obstacles when I walk and read at the same time...

I saw her current net worth being evaluated at $300,000,000. I doubt this moves has anything to do with money, but she would not want to be seen as a cheap hire either.

The fact that the majority of camera is privately owned is not relevant. The question remains: "Is 500 cameras too many, too little or just about right, for a county of 1 million?". I have no idea, but I don't see why the ratio public/private is important.

-----


The public/private aspect is important because the question changed from "Is 12,000 cameras …" to "Is 500 cameras …"

-----


The article cited never asked "Is 12,000 ...". They say "Look cameras are not that bad since most are on premise and are privately owned and operated." I find that this comparison is dishonest and is not relevant.

edit: changed "you cite" to "cited", The response is not to the OP.

I used it while abroad. Since the GPS works, you can see where you are on the map, which is a big plus over only a paper map. Obviously getting data access would be even better, but it's a nice free alternative.
