Utopia and SkyTran are two projects which could have an incredible impact on the direction of Michigan. The automotive industry is almost dead and even if it manages to survive it will never return to its glory days. Detroit lost its title as ‘Automotive Capital of the World” a long time ago but people just can’t let it go. They continue to throw dollar after dollar in vain to try to regain the title but it will never happen. The economic potential of a public owned fiber optic and personal transit system would break numerous monopolies and greatly benefit the end consumer. I keep toying with the idea of starting a non-profit organization in order to launch these projects but I never seem to have the time.
