That's my point. Advise the winning cities in advance and their representatives can appear in person. There was no legitimate reason for Lisa Helps to spend my tax dollars to attend this little junket.

Personally, I think that the taxpayer will get very little for the $150M being funded through this project. It has more to do with politics then climate change or smart cities in my opinion.

Ugogo is the larger mobility company, which includes U-bicycle, U-pool carshare, and U-parqing (sic). U-pool appears to be in its infancy, and U-parqing doesn't exist yet.

Interesting. So U-pool and U-parking would have been two of the initiatives that SIPP was backing for its Smart Cities bid, no?

It makes you wonder if the SIPP bid was lost in part to its backing of so many initiatives on a single private corporation’s services.

I think that there is going to be a lot of finger pointing over the next few weeks.

 

The SIPP proposal was really well done. I feel badly for the people that put so much time and effort into it.

As we speculated, the Mayor's memo to council sounds like SIPP's obituary.

 

Now in year four of its initial term, SIPP is forming an organizational review committee in fall 2019 in order to set the stage for organizational evolution. The Jobs for the Future 2041 Action Plan should consider this evolution.

I've seen some long-term financial graphs but this French one takes the cake.

The purchasing power in 1376 was something, I tell ya. You could have your cake and eat it too.

I understand cake became especially popular in France after Marie Antoinette's endorsement in the late 18th century.

The turnip shortage was a little lame, though.

Note the spike in the 10-year GDP moving average ~ 1300 AD....all that City of Paris carriage-lane construction clearly stimulated the economy; also answers the mystery of Mike's turnip shortage - all those guild city workers doing the masonry and painting the lanes had to eat something....
