Two short videos from my morning commute.
I started recording this one right at the moment I swiped my credit card to pay for my TransLink pass (it's like a Bay Area Oyster card). From swipe to "transaction completed" takes about 45 seconds on these machines, with a disturbing amount of detail in between. "Dialing host" alone took most of that time. I thought credit card transactions were a solved problem?
This guy was riding up Market St at 10am on his tall bike. When he came to red lights, he'd have to circle a bit to avoid a tortuous dismount/remout cycle. He looked pretty badass up there.
