Breaking the Grid: Tech and Transportation in Conversation
On a rainy, dark evening last Thursday, around 50 people came to a live podcast event hosted by BikePortland, Community Cycling Center, and Oregon Walks to hear a panel talk about the intersection of transportation and technology. The panel featured community leaders’ voices, including our own CEO, Mychal Tetteh; Executive Director of Oregon Walks, Noel Mickelberry; founder of Knock Software, William Henderson, who also created the Ride Report app; and Chris Smith, Portland Planning & Sustainability Commissioner.
The podcast covered topics ranging from, what issues can technology solve, like speeding, to when would a self-driving car be most useful (driving 5 hours down I-5, according to Mychal) to a discussion of the panelist’s favorite traffic lights. Watch or listen to the podcast below!
