People worked in one place, lived in another and had fun yet elsewhere. To get from one place to the other you needed a car, as they were separated by tens of kilometers. Uber was my only solution, as I don’t drive, and thus I’ve learned a lot about the culture and history of completely different countries. You’re not going to have more green spaces until the tax code above all incentivizes redevelopment of defunct properties/brownfields, and favors greenfields over new development.

And to me, I would just look at that future remote work podcast and I said, if I believe that the future will happen, which I think based on our nature, if we as a civilization continue to exist, will happen. It would be a really sad reality if you move to Mars only to still drive to an A Martian office like that to me, just sounds so silly as like a concept. That must have been something that we figured out before we achieve that.
