520    A guided-transportation system intended for Paris, Aramis 
       represented a major advance in personal rapid transit: it 
       combined the efficiency of a subway with the flexibility 
       of an automobile. But in the end, its electronic couplings
       proved too complex and expensive, the political will 
       failed, and the project died in 1987. The story of Aramis 
       is told by several different parties, none of which take 
       precedence over any other: a young engineer and his 
       professor, who act as detective to ferret out the reasons 
       for the project's failure; company executives and elected 
       officials; a sociologist; and finally Aramis itself, who 
       delivers a passionate plea: technological innovation has 
       needs and desires, especially a desire to be born, but 
       cannot live without the sustained commitment of those who 
       have created it.
