Did you read Mark Zuckerberg’s manifesto entitled "Building Global Community” last week?

The Facebook CEO posted a lengthy document talking about where he is taking Facebook and where he sees the social media giant in the future.

But his manifesto has come under fire from many across the globe. Forbes says… Zuckerberg's Letter And Will Facebook Make Minority Report's 'Precrime' A Reality? www.forbes.com

NPR said

A growing number of companies are looking at the viability of airborne, autonomous taxis as a way to ease urban congestion and transportation woes.

But the city of Dubai could leapfrog those with a plan to deploy a passenger-carrying drone as early as this summer.

The Ehang 184 is a drone that can carry one passenger with a max weight of 220 pounds, for a distance of 31 miles on one charge and at a top speed of 100 mph.

It’s plenty enough for short haul trips across a busy urban landscape.

Dubai officials will remotely monitor the drones, and pilot them from a centralised command centre, and the city says it’s already started test flying the vehicle in Dubai skies, so this isn’t just pure bluster.
