Another Congested Day in Silicon Valley

I have had the opportunity to travel many times to the Bay Area in California, and experience the Silicon Valley culture. From my tiny perspective of getting around in a more intelligent way it strikes me over and over again how such a supposedly intelligent set of people in this place are so extremely ineffective in planning for a smarter transportation system. The VTA light rail is underutilized, the roads are congested. There are very few spaces for pedestrians and bicycles, and a lot of spaces for parking. All you Apple/Google/Yahoo/Facebook "geniuses", what about cleaning up your local act? You guys have the resources, brains and stamina to endure a dramatic change into a much better transit system and smarter world. Good article about the problems from the : SF Chronicle
