In the Future, All Cars Are Electric, Some Will Fly
William Hertling is one of my favorite science fiction writers. If you are in the tech industry and haven’t read his books Avogadro Corp, A.I. Apocalypse, and The Last Firewall, I encourage you to go get them now on your Kindle and get after it. You’ll thank me later. In the mean time, following are William’s thoughts on the future of transportation for you to chew on this Sunday morning.
There’s always been a sweet spot in my heart for flying cars. I’m a child of the 1970s, who was routinely promised flying cars in the future, and wrote school essays about what life would be like in the year 2000.

But maybe they’re not so far away. Let’s look at some trends in transportation.
