Getting cars off the road and data into the skies

Sometime in early 2006 or so, Robin Chase came to a few Berkman talks. When we did our introductions, she claimed to be the founder of Zipcar and to be working on a new startup involving wireless mesh networks and transportation. I wondered at the time, wireless internet traveling from car to car? Am I sitting next to a crazy person, or a brilliant one? I think the answer is probably the latter. She doesn’t go into many details in her TED talk, but you can fill them in yourself.
