  1. Please come to Denver with this!

  2. If only we knew what to do with all this extra time that not standing in lines or ‘checking out’ would save us. Funny, but waiting in lines is another one of those precious opportunities we have in life to daydream, to have human contact. I’d argue, an opportunity to *be* human. I feel like we’re optimising ourselves out of these.

    It’s interesting when you see something like this, and consider it alongside the words of Simon Sinek about the millenials and how they’ve been impacted by living in a world, from day 1, with instant gratification. There’s some big questions that no one is stopping to answer before we roll out these ‘services.’ Either way, it’s going to be interesting to see how it all pans out in the long run.
