I agree with a lot of this, but I just wonder if, by partnering with others, you leave yourself vulnerable to being subsumed by them.
This is really intersting. I also wonder the impact on insurance companies – will we need to pay them?
We then have the trolley problem – who is liable for potential injuries and what can we do about them?
Super article. I fear for the BBC that as it comes into contact with governing interests and those of private broadcaster lobbyists. I wonder how the BBC can survive in an age also where younger people are unwilling to pay for content and even Neflix content is online for free.
What a great article! As we think about this, it is interesting to think about the long term effects. The US divorce rate is at all time lows and I wonder if there is a correlation between the use of dating apps to source your wife/husband and divorces.
Really interesting article. I have been thinking about this. I also wonder about the human cost of this change to online and free pornography. Firstly, I wonder if there is a rise in pornography addiction (http://www.apa.org/monitor/2014/04/pornography.aspx) and also I wonder if the people in the industry were more fairly treated beforehand. I imagine that the excess availability is driving down salaries?
Great article! I just question the economic effects of this all has on the City. I think it is great – but with the extension to Heathrow going/not going ahead, what exactly is going to happen to London being the financial hub of the world?
I just wonder ‘why’? When I’m sipping my old fashioned, I’m generally not thinking about the environmental effect of what I’m drinking. Scotch is an integral part of our heritage, but I think people care more about that than whether they are helping the environment. Especially when it comes to grabbing a drink in Shoreditch House.
This is SUCH an interesting article. There are now people looking into producing meat in labs. I find all of this a bit strange, if I’m honest. I like meat and I know many people who would stop going to a place if they changed to being more vegetarian and, whatever the sustainability of meat, the emotional link to the farm is one that predates the formation of cities.
Do you think that you can reengage young people with God through climate change? Are we not just seeing a shift away from religion? I just wonder if the shift has more to do with how religion is now less important for many than other beliefs. And further, given the inability to change doctrine, is the Pope not alienating himself by trying to alter beliefs, as we see with his views on homosexuality
I just wonder if the EU puts itself at a disadvantage by doing these sorts of schemes – you see this too in the car industry. Europe has stifled a lot of industry and jobs, at the same time as not really doing much to help innovation. Is Iberdrola forced to do this in its operations outside of Europe?
This is incredibly interesting. I just wonder what would be the effect on the industry and the Portuguese economy if the industry is slow to adapt and problems arise. I wonder if the wine industry will continue its shift to bottle caps?
