Pigs and Acorns

2003

At the time, it was a fit of dot.com pique. But when the San Francisco Board of Supervisors first had the idea to ban Seqways, they were on to something.

This comes just in time to stop embarrassing people who might not know any better.
Remember what Robin Williams used to say about cocaine? That it was God’s way of telling you you had too much money? Well, Segways are the new coke. The two-wheel super-scooters — the last of the over-hyped Silicon Valley tech bubble production line — stand in, more and more as visual shorthand for “More Money than Sense.”
