New concept of mobility - in three lines

I was asked by Seung Yoon Lee, at Korean Design Research Institute, for a three line quote on "a new concept of mobility due to ubiquitous technologies". (It's for an upcoming issue of Asian Design Journal).
So I sent this: "Reducing the movement of matter - whether goods, or people - is a main challenge in the transition to sustainability. Technology, in this context, can help us use resources in a radically more efficient way - and by 'resources' I do not just mean matter and energy, but also space, and time." Not bad eh? That's another perpetually half-finished book I can chuck in the bin.
