  • In this episode, we look at Marchetti's constant and why commute times tend to aggregate at under 1 hour per day. In this episode we also cover: - how the 1 hour daily commute has been a constant across time, and how that affects how our cities form. - What the Marchetti's constant is, and how it has driven the explosion in shared scooters and bikes. - the Segway, why it failed and what it can teach us about the emergent micromobility phenomena. - The problems with traditional bikeshare systems, and why new layers of technology have helped this. - The power-network-intelligence matrix for thinking about emergent trends in micromobility. - How networks can creatively use incentives to solve for the limitations of the vehicles Plus a conversation about what both Horace and Oliver think the future might look like in a hidden bit at the end.

  • In this episode, we refine the micromobility categorisation and unpack why urban infrastructure is a leading indicator to adoption. We run through: 1) Why the development of batteries and small electric motors underpinned the development of micromobility, the importance of off-the-shelf componentry in providing the basis for innovation and why electric will be the dominant powertrain for the coming 10 years. 2) The history of fuel infrastructure in the US, how hard this is to replicate, and why micromobility provides an opportunity to leapfrog this. 3) The history of transit, roading and tramways in major cities globally, and how they provided the conditions for the development of the car. 4) The significance of the standard bike as we know it today, and the impact that it had on society. 5) The emergence of cars in cities, the safety battles fought, and the development of signals, licensing and traffic segmentation, and the implications on that for alternative vehicle types. 6) How the emergence of micro mobility will terraform our cities in the same way that the car did.

  • In this episode, we define the term micromobility and what is/isn't in the categorisation. We run through: 1) Why micromobility can be defined as utility focussed urban transport in sub 500kg vehicles, and predominantly electrically powered. 2) The background of how Horace came to see micromobility's potential to disrupt the automobile industry. 3) Why e-bikes are some of the best city-based transportation mode option- hint: it's the fastest way across town and can be parked anywhere. 4) How to think about the categorisation of different types of micromobility devices, and why that matters. 5) How the development of micromobility is paralleling the development of personal computing and why we're still in 1976. 6) Why car obesity has provided ripe opportunity to develop micromobility options in the marketplace. 7) The key difference between invention and innovation and how this applies to micromobility. Bonus! Why Horace thinks that riding an electric bike is more thrilling than driving a Porsche. Transcript of this show is available on our Medium page.
