But first, we're gonna talk about a whole bunch of cars that were very very missing since via doom began, Tracy. What can you tell us about the fact that there seems to be fewer cars out there than there was before? Yes. I read the Seattle times latest issue or rather article, and they were talking about the fact that it feels like ninety thousand cars have disappeared. Well, where I agree with a lot of this article. There are parts that I think I think that were failing to see I, you know, it's great that bike ridership is up. I am. So beyond overjoyed that people. Over the last week or testing out. What transit can do for them. See if it really works in and conducive what their schedules. However, my friends what I have noticed in the research that I have done over the last I would say thirteen fourteen days that we've seen this closure is that the commuter starting much earlier, and we are going much later. So there is a lot of people that are starting their days earlier than normal actually a half an hour to an hour earlier than normal and some of them are deciding to take a later later drive into the city and working much later. So they avoid that evening rush. So I don't know if we've taken that into account or not. But that's what I have noticed since the start of the closure. So the ninety thousand was it ninety ninety thousand are we sure it's ninety and it seems like the nine thousand that typically were traveling every day on the viaduct the question the story was like where did all these cards go because they could see an increase in places, but it's still not accounting for that. Except Tracy raises an excellent point. It's not a literally accounting for whether it's ninety thousand cars went, but that could be that they'll same cars are just leaving earlier apparently or coming into Seattle a bit later than normal or they you know, we did have that first week. We had a great stretch of weather. We really did. And a lot of people decided to take their bike. And we saw a just an uptick in people riding their bikes.

So again, we're going to see this shift in patterns now that the weather is starting to work in our favor. Once again, we're going to see a little bit less on the roads. I think a lot of people are going to get once again back on their bikes because the weather is good. They're gonna start trying transit once again. But I think we're going to see as just be the same.

If there's anything radical about wanting people in this country to have healthcare and to be taken care of and to want to have a government that really works on behalf of the people and not just be half of special interest.

"The show by the way but there's been a suggestion in a piece that i read in the seattle times that breaking up big tech is a bad idea and they right we've heard the saber rattling from big tech critics who want to break up facebook amazon apple and google as much as those four companies sometimes really teeny off i don't want the government breaking them up i i don't i don't think that's the answer i like competition but but are there people suggesting literally that the federal government move in janet reno style like she did with microsoft back in the day that was back in the day that was i remember those days with janet reno and and the microsoft antitrust cases and there are some talk about this i don't think it's gotten very far i don't think it's a real threat but it is certainly something that comes up every so often is amazon too big selling too many things does apple habits hands in too many pies and certainly our facebook and google running the internet you hear those claims and i think that there are certainly areas where we want to be cautious and we want to make sure that there is some oversight and then third not just allowed to run crazy with things like our data and our privacy in those areas but also as companies they've been successful because they've largely been left to grow and i think i share that that sentiment with you lars that they are doing what they should be doing they're making companies employing people they're building great products well and and i don't even know how they would break them up i mean if you took facebook what would you say you have to cut the thing and half like i think if if you remember this goes way back in the day remember that what was it nbc and was wasn't abc split off from nbc at one point and they said you have to cut this network can have well today you wouldn't even worry about that but because anybody who wants a network can by content and create a stream that doesn't even require most of the physical infrastructure yeah and and one of the areas where we see this coming up is every time a big merger acquisition has announced when amazon buys a grocery store there's antitrust concerns and and and opinion pieces on the other side saying hey is this okay should be in in our grocery store in addition to our online service provider facebook buys instagram will they have the social network should they also have the photo sharing site is that appropriate apple google facebook amazon are all in the cloud services game which is where a lot of businesses are going so you can't argue that that they should plan that space there are a number of different participants there and even the government is is look at different cloud service providers in from amazon and others to provide their options so so frankly i think that as long as they're competing in a lot of different spaces and there are other competitors in that market whether they do ten things well or they do two things well they're doing what they should be doing and growing their company now brian you watch a lot of technology gross who of i over the last couple of decades are some of these arguments can seem really silly and maybe a little is five or ten years when we look back and think gosh we thought that amazon was going to be the biggest player on the globe and now they're they're they're they're like the my space of of of you know we think do we ever think that they were going to be this dominant player the way technology grows is it ever likely that somebody is going to be able to control so much of it that they become this dot indomitable force yes sure it's possible but like you said the competition is so great and the the natural evolution of technology is so great you know think about the time when we use the example earlier where janet reno was going after microsoft microsoft isn't the king of the roost anymore they're not the top dog in the game in the technology will we haven't even mentioned them in the list of apple google facebook and amazon so if you think about it that we guess things things change technology grows at some point we move on they'll make missteps one of them will will lose their top tier position and.
