Buffett said he was willing to bet anyone $500,000 that over ten years, an S&P index fund would outperform a collection of hedge funds. An index fund, at low-risk and low-cost, neither underperforming nor overperforming the market, has been called the “most boring fund there is.” It simply follows the market’s undulations, for better or for worse. And, since it’s not actively managed, the fees are a fraction of something like a hedge fund. In Buffet’s eyes, that’s almost always a better investment than trusting the experts.

We built the entire technology stack for a bus, starting in our own office. We built a driver app, a smart display, tracking software, scheduling systems, control systems, even strange flashing headsigns. We have been able to run our buses smoothly. We made software updates, even during live operations. We provided accurate realtime data in our app, as well as supporting open data. All at a fraction of the cost of what traditional bus systems do. Super fun experiment with Citymapper London minibus, though recent Human Transit posts on what "microtransit" actually means makes me wonder how careful their "fraction of the cost" accounting is. How much would just involve better-provisioned IT for public transit orgs? (Also, whitest bus ever?)
