I think there is some overlap between this and the Discipline? Work on the discipline is also there to ensure work quality I’d wager but on a slightly higher level than the current deliverable (but not always so if you include things like design critiques).
Did I miss it or do you not give any examples of the kind of programming things one would need to memorize? I’m actually not at all sure whether rote memorization is the thing that will enable anybody to code faster or better.
While this would be nice, seeing how behind the facts municipalities are when it comes to new forms of mobility and how generally unfit they are to deal with anything digital, I wouldn’t expect that much to happen here.
Best chances are with cities such as Barcelona and Amsterdam that have both their politics in order and are maintaining active open/digital offshoots.
Realistically, the upside of people having access to cheap and easy transportation in this case likely far outweighs any potential downsides for the foreseeable future.
