Co-author Julie Coates was on the bus last week. With members of an Amish family (see photo). When the bus driver announced that the bus was broke because of a computer malfunction, the Amish laughed out loud, presumably at the new fangled inventions being so unreliable.
The horse and buggy is the primary transportation for 200,000 people in the United States - - the Amish.
The Amish have been a primary resource for Nine Shift to understand the transition from the Agrarian to Industrial Age 100 years ago. Photo of the Amish family getting on bus, taken by Julie
