Posted on 07/09/2014 8:49:56 AM PDT by nascarnation
Sergey Brin lives in another world. Like every other non-gearhead, he doesn't understand us. He doesn't get why we wrench in our garages, spend weekends at track days, or take off in the middle of the night for a ride. He's like your Aunt Martha, except Brin has the power to change the world. And he doesn't make those awesome cookies.
Brin recently joined his compatriot, Google CEO Larry Page, on stage with venture capitalist Vinod Khosla to chat about where Google is headed.
In many respects, where Google goes, so goes the world, so naturally, the conversation turned to self-driving cars.
Watch the video above (the topic comes in at the 21-min mark), and it's striking to see how Brin looks at the world of driving from a disturbingly fundamentalist perspective.
To Brin's mind, not just cars, but car ownership is inefficient, wasteful, and dangerous. They take up too much space, use too many resources, and, listening to Brin, are an unconscionable blight on society.

He can p*ss up a rope.
I wonder how many personal jets, cars, boats, homes, he owns. Typical liberal/communist/socialist. One rule for the plebs, no rules for the rulers.
I for one am shocked at their hypocrisy! /s
And yet conservative(?) dimwits too stupid to make the connection continue to GOOGLE
Curious why otherwise noble intentions stop being noble because somebody figures out how to make money off them.
Driverless cars are coming, and it's not because Google or any other organization is promoting them or going to make money off them.
They're coming due to market pressures. To stop them would require drastic intervention in the free market.
Comments like Brin’s assure me that Google has jumped the shark. It will only be a matter of time...
As long as the progressive regime controls DC, the crony capitalists at Google should be free to roam.
