Why I’m Now Blogging

Yes, I know everyone else has been blogging forever, but given my day job (running a company), I just haven’t found the time or the need.  However, in my position at CEO of INRIX I’m watching first-hand how the automotive and transportation industries are changing.

I used to live in Detroit and work at the Ford Motor Company.  I loved cars, but for about 100 years, the car fundamentally hasn’t changed – body styles changed and new features were added (e.g., power steering, power seats) but nothing truly revolutionary.

Until now…

Between the electric vehicle, autonomous driving, connected car services, vehicle-t0-vehicle communication, ride-sharing services and many more innovations, the automotive industry and transportation in general is *fundamentally* changing – it will look completely different in 10-20 years than it does today.  100 years and no big changes…the next 10 will change everything.

That’s exciting!  And also why I’m now blogging…to share my thoughts to whomever is interested.

  1. my thought, the biggest carbon polluter: electrical plants, ie burning coal. For me, im disabled and am lucky to own a 17 yr old honda crv and keep a few light burning in my home. no $60,000 car here!
