Jason Hope is one of Arizona’s most prominent tech entrepreneurs. After graduating from Arizona State University in the mid-’90s, he formed his first tech startup, Jawa. Jawa was noted as being decades ahead of the market on a number of things. Its main product line was offering premium content to mobile users. These included ringtones, music and even early versions of video streaming.
All this happened at a time when most people still didn’t even own a cell phone and almost ten full years before the opening of the Apple Store. It is this visionary sense of future trends that has long made Jason Hope one of the foremost gurus of the tech scene.

The Internet Of Things, Coming To A City Near You
Hope says that these cars will, in the not too distant future, make the perils and frustrations of driving a thing of the past for most people. While it’s not easy to estimate what percentage of total traffic accidents causing injury in the United States are fully avoidable, that is, caused by human error, it is clear that they are a majority, collectively responsible for tens of thousands of excess deaths each year.
Jason Hope sees the cities of the future as being essentially traffic-accident free. This will save billions in medical and property costs and thousands of lives.
