Investors want the media market to look like the stock market? Lots of changes needed. Here's where to start. http://www.the-makegood.com/2014...
Enormous. Public. Subsidies. People forget about what helped telecoms deploy infrastructure. @seanbohan
When it comes to people who plan media campaigns, realism is often mistaken for lack of imagination. http://www.the-makegood.com/2014...

"Going to need a new windshield and screen and a new hood at a minimum. The door appears tweaked a bit, but possibly salvageable. I need some work on the driver's side flares and front quarter, too. Other than that, it wasn't all that bad for a rollover." - Tom Hespos

"Yes. It's a JK. I was at AOAA. Last obstacle of the day. It was a quick little hill I went up, then down the backside. Then there was a little turn behind the hill and I was supposed to climb up and then back down again. When I got to the top, I misjudged the depth of a rut under the driver's side. Driver's side front wheel went into it and we rolled in slow motion. Lesson learned. Aside from the roll, it was a fun day." - Tom Hespos

"I don't know that I could answer that precisely without digging into available data some more. You're right in that it can't be zero, as that would be unrealistic, but if the data revealed something along the lines of Citi Bike riders getting injured or getting involved in accidents at 2-3X the rate of cyclists pre-Citi Bike, I might think about how to improve safety with some education." - Tom Hespos

"I might agree with you (in the context of NY's licensing system) if you're talking about the written test. The road test is another story. If you roll through stop signs and don't know the rules of the road, you'll flunk." - Tom Hespos

"That's a good point about Zipcars. I'd love to see stats on that if anyone has a link. Big difference, though. You need to be licensed to operate a motor vehicle, which presumes you've had some formal training in safety, courtesy of the state that issued your license. I'm not certain the safety education for Citi Bike is as rigorous." - Tom Hespos

"I'm not suggesting it does. It's just one example of an egregious violation of safety protocol that really could have resulted in a serious injury. Just in my daily walk between Penn Station and the Flatiron District, I see very dangerous behavior on a daily basis from people riding Citi Bikes. I do notice it when bike messengers do it, too. I'm seeing way more in the way of dangerous behavior on the part of the Citi Bikers. I think it comes from inexperience most of the time and not from any sort of malicious intent." - Tom Hespos

"I'm not in any way cheering against it. When I lived in Manhattan, I rode my bike from the Upper East Side to the Financial District several times a week. I love cycling in the city. I'm also happy that safety is being enforced. But I'm also curious about what kind of incremental police effort is required." - Tom Hespos

"Deaths per million miles isn't the safety metric I'd choose to gauge whether something is safe or not. Show me accidents and injuries. I'd also like to know about secondary effects, like what kind of police resources are being expended ticketing the biscuitheads who almost ran into me, and what those police officers are being pulled away from when they have to run down a Citi Bike cyclist going the wrong way down a one-way street." - Tom Hespos

"Unless you happen to believe that concentrating on deaths per thousand miles (or whatever) isn't the right metric to convince someone of a program's overarching safety. I'm not cherry picking. I'm criticizing the metric." - Tom Hespos
THespos on Citi Bike's First Five Months: Zero Deaths, 93,000+ Members - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Conceivably, it could. If it gains more popularity over time and the number of inexperienced cyclists coming into the program accelerates, it could certainly become less safe. But really the overarching point is the accidents and injuries. Deaths per million miles isn't the metric I'd choose to try to make the case for a program's safety." - Tom Hespos
