Spotify time travel (post below) goes only one way, into the past. The Flying Pony map goes both ways.
Uncountable events are recorded on the map of mythical Gerald Street. Now, many of them are honoured with new, engraved plaques. First, examples of travel to past events:
The Etobicoke Explorer Mission at the turn of the century was a significant breakthrough in East Toronto/West Toronto relations, but that was long ago. How about this Self driving car event that happens next year!
[UPDATE] Time travel has its bugs. Spotify caused a lot of TV freezes. Not recommended until I know more about the problem. [Solved this way]
To accompany our dinner at Rob and Lisa’s house, Rob created a CKLW 1968 Top Songs playlist on Spotify. Today, he shared the list online and Danica is over the moon.
We put the Spotify app on our Mac-connected TV set. Danica donned the Sennheiser headphones and danced her way wirelessly into the kitchen. She has rings on her fingers, no bells on her toes, yet she can have music wherever she goes.
Where will walkers go? Perhaps to tracks in dedicated zones, similar to dog parks. Who cares, really. Walking is unnatural in urban spaces.
Like sidewalk construction and maintenance, regulation and enforcement will be a public responsibility. There will be some who want to mug the delivery bots, some who will try to ride on them and mischievous children will obstruct them by teasing their sensors. Research is still being done to prevent terrorists, malcontents and business competitors from planting unwanted devices on innocent bots.
