Micromobility 4: Marchetti's constant and the power-network-intelligence matrix of micromobility

In this episode, we look at Marchetti's constant and why commute times tend to aggregate at under 1 hour per day. In this episode we also cover: - how the 1 hour daily commute has been a constant across time, and how that affects how our cities form. - What the Marchetti's constant is, and how it has driven the explosion in shared scooters and bikes. - the Segway, why it failed and what it can teach us about the emergent micromobility phenomena. - The problems with traditional bikeshare systems, and why new layers of technology have helped this. - The power-network-intelligence matrix for thinking about emergent trends in micromobility. - How networks can creatively use incentives to solve for the limitations of the vehicles Plus a conversation about what both Horace and Oliver think the future might look like in a hidden bit at the end. Transcript of this show is available on our Medium page.

Micromobility 3: Getting to here - the historical context of micromobility's emergence

In this episode, we refine the micromobility categorisation and unpack why urban infrastructure is a leading indicator to adoption. We run through: 1) Why the development of batteries and small electric motors underpinned the development of micromobility, the importance of off-the-shelf componentry in providing the basis for innovation and why electric will be the dominant powertrain for the coming 10 years. 2) The history of fuel infrastructure in the US, how hard this is to replicate, and why micromobility provides an opportunity to leapfrog this. 3) The history of transit, roading and tramways in major cities globally, and how they provided the conditions for the development of the car. 4) The significance of the standard bike as we know it today, and the impact that it had on society. 5) The emergence of cars in cities, the safety battles fought, and the development of signals, licensing and traffic segmentation, and the implications on that for alternative vehicle types. 6) How the emergence of micro mobility will terraform our cities in the same way that the car did. Transcript of this show is available on our Medium page.
