Happened across this link today: http://channels.netscape.com/ns/news/story.jsp?floc=FF-APO-1110&idq=/ff/story/0001%2F20030119%2F143388766.htm&sc=1110

It's a shame. But the real decisions will be after Segways become available to anyone and are actually tried out in a few cities.

Eeek. Well, I'm glad they won't ban them in LA. I want one those eventually...

To paraphrase someone, how people are so stupid there is beyond me, but it IS San Francisco.

/me laughs at all the dot coms in SF that bought them.

Oh wait.. there aren't any left, but I did just see Steve Wozniack riding one.. hmm

Take the Segway and put it in my hummer.

Ok.. I'll stop.

San Francisco is a not a city you would want to ride a segway in. If you have been there and seen the hills first hand you know what I'm talking about.

I don't think they should have BANNED it though, but I wouldn't own one there. Public transport there is awesome.
