Future so bright

February 9, 2018

The FDA has approved clinical trials of intermittent rapamycin for the purpose of anti-aging. I suspect, fifty years hence, people will look back at that as one of the first examples of a revolution in medical treatment.

Driverless cars may be the next advance in commuting. But it is an open question whether they will solve congestion. There are strong arguments that they won’t. The fact that they make congestion less a burden for their passengers, who can happily be playing and working away as their vehicles carry them to and fro, actually weighs against the elimination of congestion. One solution to a problem is just to make it so it doesn’t bother people so much.
