Get together, Get efficient

get efficient

Context

Residential areas called suburbs are built around cities’ borders. Likewise, industrial areas and offices where pushed even farther and are usually built in the middle of nowhere, since those lands are cheaper. The average family’s quality of life improved substantially (not much in these last years) and each family now owns a house and at least one car.

Problem

Everyone lives away from work and everyday there’s an exodus of people from home to work and back again. The total costs of commuting are huge and diverse (e.g. time, energy, quality of life, productivity, sustainability).

É sobre colocar a tecnologia ao serviço das pessoas, dos portugueses, da democracia que vos venho falar hoje. Antes de mais há 40 anos deram-nos a democracia e a liberdade. Podemos estar descontentes com o rumo que a democracia tomou, mas todos devemos estar eternamente gratos a quem lutou e morreu para que hoje tivéssemos essa liberdade. Muito obrigado. Ofereceram-nos uma ferramenta – a democracia – mas não nos disseram como usá-la. Não é perfeita, há maneiras de a aperfeiçoar.

Turns out people aren’t like magnets; they’re more like puzzle pieces of the same color.
