Celebrating LGBTQ Activism in Los Angeles, Now and Before

June marks Pride Month in the United States, a typically joyful time during which we who are members of the LGBTQ community, along with our allies, take to the streets to celebrate our queerness and be merry. But among the sea of rainbow flags and glittery floats each year, it can be easy to forget that Pride started as (and has always been) a protest: a bright, brash, and in-your-face fight for recognition and rights — rights that were long denied and have only very recently started to be won.

Q&A with Rachel F., Human Factors Engineer

If you are reading this, you are probably human. Like most humans, you have wants, needs, and opinions. You take joy in some things and are annoyed by others. You have strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes. You are complex, and you are unique.

I have you in mind every day when I go to work at Canoo — or these days, when working from my living room. I am also thinking about your family, your friends, and hundreds of thousands of people who are strangers to you. It is my job to put myself in your shoes, to see…


The next 365 days

The first Earth Day was launched on April 22, 1970 by US Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin.

You’re zipping down the road in a new car with too many buttons and switches to manage when suddenly you hit a bump. A finger slips and accidentally clips a knob. Instantly, your private karaoke session of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is ruined. You’re stuck there, sitting at a dead stop in sudden traffic, trying to remember which piece of plastic on your steering wheel puts the audio back to Bluetooth/AUX. You fumble for a moment. You finally get it, but by the time you’re at ‘Scaramouche, Scaramouche, can you do the Fandango?’ the vibe is gone. …

In the last twenty years, we’ve gone from popping into Blockbuster and renting a physical DVD to having access to thousands of titles on demand at home and on-the-go. Other industries point to a similar progression: from landlines to smart phones; notepads to smart home speakers; grocery stores to food delivery services; and arguing in person to arguing over Twitter. All have evolved to meet the consumer’s innate desire for an easier and more convenient experience. Yet, when we look at the automotive industry relatively little seems to have changed over that same period. Hours of online research leads to…
