Portland Transport Audio – Complex Systems and Lifecycles

No, we’re not starting a podcast (at least not yet).

But we will from time to time point our readers to interesting content we come across in audio form.

This week’s Tech Nation radio program features a fascinating discussion (MP3, about 10MB) with John Thackara on the design of complex systems.

Included is a discussion of lifecycle costs that reaches a surprising conclusion about passenger rail versus air travel.

It movitivated me to order the book.
