I had to give a talk yesterday to a bunch of high school kids and took one of the new university vehicles out to the school. It was one of those fancy hybrid electric cars. The vehicle drove well but I was overwhelmed by how different it was from a regular car. There were too many new things to try to figure out, from the button needed to turn on the car to the 'gear stick'. The lack of a key also felt a bit weird. I guess I am conditioned to old technology.
