As an attack on Uber on public safety grounds, it's straight-up pathetic, since any sane person would feel safer in an Uber cab than in a "licensed" taxi.
Please explain how Uber makes taxis as a whole more unsafe.
you're in fucking dreamland if you think the next wave of exploitative assholes aren't just going to adopt some more nominally collectivist author
I did read it and it's stupid. What, a collective of rapists is now going to incorporate an internet start-up offering people taxi rides? If he's worried about creepers, he should be worried about Craigslist. Uber is not going to make taxis more dangerous.
The original Silicon Valley meaning of a disruptive company was one that used its small size to shake up a bigger industry or bloated competitor. Increasingly, though...
Nor is it true that most tech people in SV are libertarians, there are far more liberals (in the U.S. sense anyways) than anti-government types. Rand is more mocked than worshipped in the Valley (at least in my 13 years of experience in the SV world).
