The Myth of Valley DoucheBaggery - John Battelle's Search Blog
But I think our industry culture is moving far faster than the writers at Silicon Valley might wish to believe. I think we’re seeing the rise of a new culture, one that rejects arrogance and the founder worship which breeds it. Inevitable outliers aside, the Valley and technology culture I experience every day in my work at NewCo is one of passion, sweat, earnestness, and good intentions. Sure, we all fuck up. And sure, the press (especially, not surprisingly, the press in New York) has a field day when someone does. But by and large, the teams making companies like Slack, LiveRamp, Medium, Earnest, MetroMile, Lyft, Okta, Pinterest, and hundreds more are damn fine people, and they are dedicating their lives to making something that creates positive change – a product or service that makes the world a better place (even if it’s in a small way). [...] When you’re facing existential threat, our tolerance for douchebaggery in the name of making more money at any cost, ....

Robert Reich on Uber's business practices
Today Uber staged a protest outside New York City Hall against a bill to limit the issuance of new for-hire car licenses (about 60 people showed up for the rally, most of them Uber employees). Meanwhile, according to Bloomberg Business, Uber is still losing money. So what happens if, after driving most traditional taxis out of business, Uber goes under? Or after driving out the competition, it has the market to itself and starts raising its prices? Under antitrust law, a company acts illegally if it engages in predatory pricing – pricing below cost in order to push competitors out of business. // &!

I was an undercover Uber driver :: Cover :: Philadelphia City Paper
I talked to maybe 20 randomly hailed UberX and Lyft drivers between November and March. All but one were male immigrants, primarily from Africa, South Asia and the Middle East, and most spoke heavily accented English. It's a completely different group from the drivers I'm able to get in touch with through Uberpeople.net, the demographics of which I'd call "Reddit-ish." All the immigrant drivers who spoke to me took a lot of pride in providing excellent service. Few had been Uber drivers for more than a month or two. Many were helping support multiple family members, most had at least one other job and all worked hours that would reduce me to a weeping wreck in a month.

Uber, the Rashomon | PandoDaily
[ low skill, routine job ] When an Uber glides to its appointed pickup point, what do we see? Do we see an innovator hastening the inexorable shift to a new information-based economy? Or an arrogant bully using cheap capital, greed, and a dangerous, misogynist culture of convenience to consolidate a trillion dollar market? Or do we see both? [...] I’m sure pure Uber defenders exist, but the truth is, most of us are worried about the sheer expression of capitalistic force that the company represents. [...] Uber is the poster child for our global conversation about the role of work in our society, and about the kind of company we want to create, work at, and celebrate. [SV] its male-dominated, aggressive philosophy of “breaking things fast” and “asking for forgiveness rather than permission.” Uber feels inevitable — a uniquely of-the-moment company, a mirror held up to the Valley’s aggregate psyche.

My Dad kicked ass at Wii bowling: Or, why it’s okay to compete with Travis Kalanick | PandoDaily
We investors would never bet against the CEO! And yet, if you consider the most respected tech CEOs like Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos, they aren’t just CEOs investors doubted. Their very leadership is defined in their defiance of what investors wanted. On that front, the love Uber investors have for TK is itself a warning sign for the company. Here’s what I’d say to Uber investors: You own part of what is potentially one of the most powerful corporate combustion engines ever devised by mankind. Congratulations! But it’s both stable and unstable, and it could end up blasting up into uncharted space or blowing up in your face. And please don’t portray your loved ones as losers to puff up the legend of TK. As I have been reminded time and again: thinking about hyping an already overvalued company? Good luck. [TK doesnt do conservative nor gratitude, he had his battles with a 'mediocre' outcome b4. TKs past experience & grudges are imprinted on Uber] [walking on a double edged samurai sword]

Careful what you wish against: Silicon Valley just rolled out a red carpet to government regulation | PandoDaily
I never thought I’d write these words: Sometimes the public markets is the best thing that can happen to a hot company. [...] Today, Uber running a different playbook than even Facebook. First, it has controlled access to liquidity much more than Facebook ever did. But, by contrast, the company’s access to capital has been an exaggeration of Facebook’s already prodigious fundraising path. Uber has wholly embraced the notion of raising gargantuan amounts of money at jaw-dropping late stage valuations as an avenue to put off an IPO, seemingly indefinitely if it wants. That should suit a CEO like Uber’s Travis Kalanick who bristles at anyone telling him how to do his job and hates government regulation. Importantly, Uber is the first unicorn of the mobile-first era. [...] Uber’s investors have exerted no pressure on the Valley darling. [...] Reckless disregard for customers.

That attitude manifests itself when the company is fighting taxi regulations or other obstacles the taxi establishment places in its path. But it also seeps into the way it views everyone it comes into contact with, including journalists. But part of it is that there simply isn’t anybody in Silicon Valley willing to tell Uber’s principals to grow up. They have a hot company that is disrupting an outmoded industry — and, therefore, they are lionized, not matter how boorish their behavior. They are like the star football player at State U. who can get away with anything because he scores touchdowns on Saturday.

The horrific trickle down of Asshole culture: Why I’ve just deleted Uber from my phone | PandoDaily
But the rapidly pulled post out of Uber Lyon proves what every CEO has always known: It’s less about what you say directly and explicitly to employees that creates or destroys a culture. It’s what they take from what you say. And I am not surprised that someone inside the company took Kalanick’s callous attitude towards female riders and comments like “Boober” to mean that shocking level of exploitation and disrespect was appropriate — that it would even be celebrated by HQ. And like always, Uber has quietly withdrawn the offending post, but they won’t apologize. That only exacerbates the internal message that this type of behavior was only bad because it wound up on Buzzfeed.

"In raising that massive [funding] round, any investor who wanted to even look at Uber's books to decide whether they wanted to make an investment had to sign an agreement which specifically named us, as well as Lyft, and restricting them from having any ability to even talk to us for at least a year. "It wasn't just good enough for them to raise enough money for their business - they needed to restrict the market to Hailo and its competitors to have access to capital.

Uber Hires Uber-Lobbyist For European Expansion - Digits - WSJ
The company hired Mark MacGann, the former head of government affairs and public advocacy for exchange group NYSE Euronext in Brussels. MacGann updated his LinkedIn profile to include the new job, and confirmed the appointment in a message to the Journal. MacGann, a 20-year lobbying veteran, has been appointed head of public policy for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He left NYSE Euronext in May after four years at the firm. MacGann’s appointment comes after Uber hired David Plouffe, a key strategist behind president Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns. The firm’s chief executive Travis Kalanick said in a blog post in August that Plouffe had been hired to oversee global policy, communications and branding at Uber.

Uber continues to screw its “partners,” now by forcing Uber Black drivers to accept UberX fares | PandoDaily
Another issue arises when drivers contemplate simply rejecting these economy tier ride requests. Uber drivers are, after, all independent contractors – a point the company has gone to great lengths to make clear. On the surface, it seems they should be free to accept or reject any ride they choose. According to forum comments, however, Uber drivers are required to maintain a minimum 80 percent ride acceptance rate to remain in the company’s good graces – the best performers exceed 97 percent, the company tells its drivers. Ignore too many inbound ride requests when you are the closest vehicle and the result could be some combination of reprimand/probation, lost bonus income, or, in extreme cases, deactivation of the driver’s account. [...] Uber has stated that its mission is to undercut the cost of car ownership. In pursuit of this goal, it seems like the company is increasingly emphasizing its economy tier services at the expense of its one-time baller image.

Bill Gurley schools NYU professor: Uber will be 25x bigger than you think | PandoDaily
[ + long tail use cases and cases that seem in retrospect obvious but currently are foggy (ie owning a car in the city for ppl a luxury good), car ownership deemed inefficient/waste of money; when car is used only ~5% during the day and there are clearly cheaper and if not even more convenient options of daily transportation on offer. ] Gurley, who is one of the smartest and most articulate figures in all of venture capital (and who just happens to be an early Uber investor and board member) laid out a more than 4,500-word argument for why Damodaran underestimated the Uber opportunity by no less than a factor of 25. The Benchmark Capital partner was diplomatic, apologetic even, but that made his dismantling of the professor’s reasoning no less thorough.
