NYT Column Looks At The Hyperloop With A Skeptical Eye

A multitude of Hyperloop projects are springing up across the country, at startups and universities.

Heck, it’s even made it to The Tonight Show.

Now, Allison Arieff, a contributing op-ed writer for The New York Times wrote a column that aimed a skeptical eye at the ever-accelerating Hyperloop projects that have dominated transportation news since Elon Musk first proposed the Hyperloop idea in 2013.

In the piece, (which you should read in full here), Arieff skewers the Silicon Valley brogrammer culture and raises a lot of good questions.

That question, along with many others that Arieff raises will definitely need to be answered–otherwise the Hyperloop, as awesome an idea as it is, is just hype.
