A memorable cartoon shows a store with two tables, one labeled “Toys for Normal Children,” the other labeled “Toys for Gifted Children.” The former had no customers; the latter was three deep. Apply that analogy to smart cities. Can you imagine an elected official shopping at the “normal city” table? I would argue that so many […]

On a Friday night late last year, my home state of Massachusetts formally flipped the switch and converted to no-stop electronic tolling on the infamous Mass Pike. Everyone who has experienced no-stop electronic tolling appreciates the time savings it creates — and how it eliminates looking under floor mats for that extra quarter while going 50 mph. I still recall […]
