Benedict Evans on Twitter: ""Only rich people will have autonomous cars" reminds me of "only rich people will have mobile phones". New tech starts out expensive and gets cheap. This is how tech works."
great thread:

@BenedictEvans
"Only rich people will have autonomous cars" reminds me of "only rich people will have mobile phones". New tech starts out expensive and gets cheap. This is how tech works.

@BenedictEvans
(After all, we went from ‘only rich people have cars’ to ‘only rich people ride horses’)

@GregoryZag
(And from “only rich people eat sugar” to “only reach people can avoid sugar”)

@nachkari
Only rich people will have non-self driving cars. It will be like a sailboat. Expensive object of leisure

@Fidofornia
Only rich people will be able to afford the pleasure of driving

@paddenguymurphy
Only the rich will have non-AV non-electric cars in the future.. ie Thomas Edison’s “We will make electricity so cheap that only the rich will dine by candlelight”

@farbood
That’s how they wrote about electricity too. Lightning in the walls for rich people.

@mzeinfeld
Partly true. Perhaps only rich people will own autonomous cars until no one owns autonomous cars (they share them)
