On the idea of fairness in transportation. The benefits of transportation are not always distributed fairly over people and places. The way we plan transportation has inherent flaws and assumptions that lead to structural injustices if not properly counterbalanced. It's normal to think of fairness when we're talking about healthcare, or education, or other public goods, but transporation is traditionally spared from such concerns.

I’m kinda sad that I am not at this conference.

It was maybe the most enjoyable conference I have attended? Small-scale, quite a lot of familiar faces, and the biggest congregation of people who think about this topic I've seen yet. I was one talk in a series of six about the topic.

It was all in drunk Germ-...I mean, Dutch though. Would be hard to understand for you...

Hmmm, yeah. I might have picked up about four words the whole conference, but it sounds like it was a well-thought-out event. You weren’t boring a bunch of people who had no interest in what you had to say.
