04:30 Do cities still matter?
Hey there, I'm L.D. Salmanson from Cherre and it's really great to be here today and speak about one of my favorite subjects’ cities before we begin this presentation is not about to be about Cherre. We just some really cool stuff here and you know how to find them not going to be about real estate data with a leading expert on the subject matter. So feel free to contact me or anybody on my team separately if that's something you want to talk about. Think about AI machine learning things. I'm very passionate about we're here today to have some fun when you try to change the world while
we're at it. Just a couple of words about me. I've lived in cities almost my entire life. Mostly really big cities and I'm moving around a lot. No place is truly home. The only prolong. The time of ever spent outside of the city was during my time in the military. I don't really think that counts. I'm definitely the product of City thinking I way too many degrees. I've always worked in Enterprise environments. So maybe we should start with some confessions here. Right? I really hate the word sustainability. I don't feel like I owe the universe anything. I know it sounds really selfish but
least I'm honest about it right by the way. I think most people don't we should probably stop pretending as they do if you want to sell some real problems. I don't really need a hug to feel better either and meaning is Metrix required by my LPS. Well, I do not really want scratch to work. had even if I did most of the requirements are still very weak when we actually care about something we act like it we act like we don't really care. We act like it's a game of nihilism. I'm worse. We do things to make yourself feel good just feel alright, this is by far the most
