"I, like Musk, believe in technology breakthroughs and that these have the potential to shape how we use and drive cars. However, I think, these are more likely to come from technology-driven shifts to higher capacity utilisation through Uber and Lyft and, if regulation doesn't hold it back, the driverless car (which is being developed by a formidable competitor Google)."

"Computers deal with interrupts by operating a 'stack' where they place the data for each interrupted task, so they can return to them in reverse order. When I'm trying to work, email and cook, while being assailed by interruptions from 3 kids, I get the same problem as over-worked computers: stack overflow - you get so muddled that you have to re-start all the tasks!"
