Linked: The Oatmeal and a Google Self-Driving Car

A great read over at the Oatmeal about Google's self-driving car. An entertaining look at the technology and some really great thoughts about the potential of the self-driving car. 

I'm not sure how I feel about the self-driving car. I'm intrigued. The other day, I witnessed an 18-wheeler slam into a concrete barricade and bounce back onto a busy interstate. How could a self-driving car handle a scenario like this? And count me among the people who aren't 100% sure of Google's motivations in creating this technology.

But the upside is amazing. We'll see if it ever matures into mass-market technology.
