The Future City

Welcome to Your Future City!

In the Future City Podcast, we speak with extraordinary people you normally wouldn’t hear from about the future of cities. From cocktail artists to urban planners, green thumbs to financial analysts, we share stories about how these creative thinkers and doers are shaping the cities you live in.

Obviously, the views expressed here are our own not those of our employers.

The Long Island Railroad’s chief technologist Will Fisher says remote work will keep going if the commute sucks. According to Fisher “If you don’t have competitive commuting options, you will resort to virtual work.”

On this episode of The Future City we speak with Google and Palantir-trained technologist and Chief Innovation Officer for the Long Island Railroad Will Fisher. Will has a degree in Computer Science from Princeton and an MBA from Stanford.

Will speaks with us about the service information spectrum, why having great service means less realtime information is required and the need to mix up your commute to work by focussing on human-powered machines.
