Blade Runner (1982)
All he’d wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got?

Andy Serwer interviewing Marc Andreessen:
Serwer: But people love their cars. They have their stuff in their cars, the car seats for their baby, their Frisbees, their golf clubs—it’s their second home. People aren’t going to give that up, are they?
Andreessen: Ask a kid. Take teenagers 20 years ago and ask them would they rather have a car or a computer? And the answer would have been 100% of the time they’d rather have a car, because a car represents freedom, right?
Today, ask kids if they’d rather have a smartphone or a car if they had to pick and 100% would say smartphones. Because smartphones represent freedom. There’s a huge social behavior reorientation that’s already happening. And you can see it through that. And I’m not saying nobody can own cars. If people want to own cars, they can own cars. But there is a new generation coming where freedom is defined by “I can do anything I want, whenever I want. If I want a ride, I get a ride, but I don’t have to worry. I don’t have to make car payments. I don’t have to worry about insurance. I have complete flexibility.” That is freedom too.
Even for me, with each passing year, owning a car seems to be far more of a hassle than it’s worth — quite literally. Yeah, yeah, Silicon Valley bubble talk for now, perhaps. But I think this mentality will spread rather quickly in many areas of the country.
