EVERY HUMAN WHO gets down with the Gregorian calendar can celebrate New Year’s Day, that rare 24-hour stretch when soldiering through a hangover is expected, and precious little work gets done. Too bad that this year, they only got one day before it was back to work. Good thing WIRED’s transportation team was here to cover it all.
Jack provided context for Tesla’s (disappointing, but unsurprising) new production numbers. Alex took a look at secretive self-driving startup Aurora Innovation, which is finally striking some deals with major carmarkers. And I dug into the demise of open source mapping company Mapzen, and ask what’s next for digital cartographers. (Spoiler: They’ll only get more popular.)
