Wrong thread -- thread renaming to Salesforce threw me off.

Jungle- like city landscapes are some of my favorite. Never been to Honolulu but from what I've seen of the Downtown area is gorgeous Not a fan of endless Manhattan- like concrete jungles. Mixing natural and manmade is what makes a great city IMO.

The tropical look and feel is perfect for this part of the city too, which can be 20- 30 degrees in variance from the western more foggy parts.

A far away webcam photo of the first pieces of Salesforce Transit Center's gondola. This is being installed much earlier than I thought, was expecting it to not be operational when the center opens.

^^ If you're 50 or older, it will probably never happen in your lifetime. But for those being born right now, they might be able to enjoy it by the time they hit middle age...

(I wink, but honestly wouldn't be shocked if it's close to my half joking prediction)

Seeing as how California has set a target of 2040 to increase Amtrak speeds from 80 mph to 125 mph (and they admit even that is hard to achieve) you are probably right.
http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/tra...181385651.html

If it takes 25 years just to increase the speed of an existing track, how in the hell is California going to actually get big things done?

There just isn't priority for rail transit in California and probably never will be. California will be a state of autonomous road vehicles that you can summon with your iPhone. We will never be serious about rail/ subway/ light rail. Roads are king!

Even nearby Arizona is creating a new "smart city of the future" funded by Bill Gates. I doubt anything like that could happen in California. Too much old money and establishment politics here. The state is incredibly conservative/ antiquated/ rusted and set in its ways.
