Electric cars, light rail, Segways, and lofts all stimulate the imagination, but you are letting your inner-city bias show. Vast regions of the country - if not most of it - comprise rural living, small towns, and miles and miles between work and home. In Texas, for example, your Segway is not going to get you to the grocery store, let alone give you room to haul your feed back from the feedstore. Most of us have plunged into lifestyles (regular commutes) that may tie us to internal combustion, but that free us to pursue far-flung careers and stimulating adventures, and to live in otherwise remote locales. One future I still await is when we don't need to transport our bodies to the office (or the grocery store) every day.
