Over The Top: The Gondola Project in The National Post

On Saturday one of Canada’s two national newspapers, The National Post, printed and posted an article by reporter Tristin Hopper. The article, entitled Over the top: Transit planners look to gondolas to put an end to urban gridlock, is a refreshingly exhaustive look at the technology and how we got to where we are now.

Of late I’ve become hesitant of press due to a general lack of thoroughness on their part when it comes to the technology, yet Mr. Hopper’s piece is well worth the read – and I’m not just saying that because The Gondola Project is prominently (and I’d also say positively) featured in it. I say it because it’s a well-researchered, well-written and articulate feature.

Most interestingly, gondolas are really only one half of the story. Mr. Hopper goes beyond the mere capabilities of the technology and delves into the complexity of how one communicates a ridiculous idea to the world without it coming off as stupid.

Again: Well worth the read (and the comments are strangely positive).
