Wednesday, June 3. It’s a week now. I’ll admit, I’ve always supported bike share in principle. But I never thought it would be for me. I’ve changed my mind. I actually think Citi Bike is going to become a feature in my life. Every day, I’ve thought of new ways it’s useful. And I like that I feel excited every time I use it.
Are there glitches one week in? Sure. I’ve heard some online chatter. But guess what? A hundred years later, the subway has glitches too. Citi Bike will only improve.

“We’re working on constantly shifting grounds,” said Rudolf Frieling, a curator of media arts at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which has been at the forefront of sustaining online art. “Whatever hardware, platform or device we’re using is not going to be there tomorrow.”
“Frankly speaking,” he added, “it’s a huge challenge.
Not every museum is set up to do that. It takes huge technical expertise.” The riddles are only solved by “actually doing it,” Mr. Frieling explained.
We live in a world made up more of story than stuff. We are creatures of memory more than reminders, of love more than likes. Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be messy, and painful, and almost impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die.
