1: Setting the scene for the great unbundling
0:00 -:--
In this inaugural episode, we outline the key themes and issues we want to address in the show series including: 1) Defining micromobility - what is it, where did it come from and why does it matter? 2) The disruptive potential of micromobility. With this, we will unpack why the current fixation on autonomy with automobiles is misplaced, and what a distributed, connected robot of micromobility vehicles might look like. 3) The great unbundling of the car - what does it mean, and why the micromobility was required to make multimodality a feasible unbundled option for travel. 4) How the emergence of micro mobility tracks the development of the early days of computing, and why we’re still really in 1976 with the emergence of the Apple I. 5) How disruption from the low end induces demand and drives such steep adoption curves. We also unpack why their scale will permit the development of large scale computation platforms, especially vs. traditional car platforms. 6) The impact of the emergence of micromobility on…
