Aaron Lewis, a design intern at Uber, ended an article he wrote with... "Owning a car will one day be like owning a horse - fun for the wealthy, but financially foolish for everyone else." It makes sense to me. However, the road towards that idea continues to inspire a lot of design ideas and opportunities. Here is FastCompany's Most Innovative list for the Automotive Sector in 2016:

Canada has been welcoming Americans for a long time, although the country loses more to its bigger, richer neighbour than it gains from it. Canada was popular during prohibition, and again during the Vietnam War, when thousands of Americans came along with writers, architects, educators and others who added so much to the richness and economic vitality of the country. No doubt the welcome mat will be put out again.
There is a buzz out there that some Americans are thinking that it might be a time to consider moving to Canada; Even starchitect Frank Gehry is thinking of returning after 70 years away. Many American news sources have taken note of a website“Cape Breton if Trump Wins,” which is full of useful information. But most Canadians would say Cape Breton? Really?
Right now the country is a mix of good and bad news; economically it's not so hot, with its addiction to oil and commodity revenues. That’s caused the loonie (what Canadians call their dollar) to drop like a rock; this is hard on Canadians but just wonderful for Americans who find their dollar goes way farther up here. If you have a telecommuting job that you can do in Canada while getting paid in U.S. dollars, you have scored.
It's an excellent read. Love the old postcards, too. Go for it. Read the complete article.
