Steve Jobs’ persona is now slated to rival Buhdda but on a 2.0 kinda level. This is cool I guess, but more on top of that is how awesome it is that he looked to the bicycle as a reference of ultimate efficiency. That moment as seen in the following vid was back in the 80’s. And as much as he was a soothsayer regarding the evolution of technology, he was also – although perhaps unwittingly – on point with regard to the bicycle. Nothing is as efficient, and that has major implications for how our future is going to be shaped. Who here is not welcoming it?
I sit in wait and look forward to the day that this potential – the bicycle – sets off a sea change which will affect this country. A sea change that arrises on the collective realization that better living occures via less. Less as more. Less haste. Less dominance. Less greed. This I hope will create more demand for walks in parks and moments with our kids that cannot be replaced or virtualized. More rides with our friends and for ourselves, to beer and to places in the middle of everywhere, and more rides to the job and to the store for more beer. I sense a theme here. I think I will see this in my lifetime. #occupybikeseat. It’s been done before. That means it can be done again:by
