This was written by a 61-year-old (@lefsetz) and appeared in my Twitter feed after multiple retweets from 40-somethings (@pmarca, @chrisboden). That’s how far behind the curve I am.
Cars are the newspapers of today. Something oldsters can’t live without and youngsters can… Unless you’re willing to question all your preconceptions, you’re going to be left behind.
I guess we’re assuming that in the future, no one will live outside of SF and NYC. If you’re a rich 40-something (50-something?) having a midlife crisis, don’t buy a Ferrari to impress the barely-legal ladies. Instead, acquire a ton of Yo followers, or something.
