Ballad Of The Long Commute

There's been several complaints online of the hellishly long daily commute through unpredictable traffic, just to get to work. Not a particularly new issue, but a major part of the conversation this time is on the willingness of individuals to move closer to work, and sacrifice comfortability or family to do so. So first, we get into what it means for cities to grow upwards, and how it affects people's choices. Then, we talk about the future: What should our cities look like, and how does it take into account all these changing needs.
