Bicycles in Berlin are a good example of failed technology infrastructure planing. The gov is massively pushing bike sharing & access. Yet, they did not invest in Bike Lanes & other city planing measures such as Car reduction (DE car lobby too strong). The result? Dangerous Chaos.
When designing new technologies, it's tempting to analyse them in isolation - a grave mistake. All tech lives in a complex web of other tech, people, animals, infrastructure, history etc. All tech has positive effects (augmentation) and negative effects (amputation).
