Mondays 120: Not So Self Driving

October 24, 2022

Happy Mondays! This week on Mondays at The Overhead Wire we dive into a number of topics including the hype around self driving cars, the monetary benefits of using parking spaces for more than just cars, recycling whole buildings, and thinking about community input.  We also throw in a little highway talk and parks on top of a Costco.

Below are the links from the news items:

…the first thing I read every morning is the newsletter to see what’s been out there. It’s great to have an aggregator that pulls everything together so nicely.

I think that the email newsletter that you do every morning is the best one that I get, and I get a lot of them.
