  • @NY Times, I kinda like the old wooden signs. But comparing it to the changing of the guards, that’s a stretch. All I really want from Caltrain is to use GPS and give me real time arrival data on the platforms/website.

    Hey, great party last night. To anyone who listened to my Racer 5 induced rants, thank you for humoring me. I think Jamison got the brunt of it.

  • ZA

    @NYTimes – With 6 billion people on the planet, do we need to be destroying more jobs? Replace a human with technology when that technology can do it better, more safely, and at less cost. Without those three preconditions, keep the (inherently flexible) human and buy the technologies that improve their performance.

  • ZA – I’d gladly trade three people putting signs up with a stick for 3 mechanics trying to keep the trains in one piece.
