Earth Uber Alles

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 25, 2014

Paul Ford imagines a future where Uber is the largest company in the world, controlling much of humanity’s transportation and delivery needs.

I am Uber. I believed to 0.56 certainty that I could find a bicycle for the person doing the delivery and provide that person with a discounted rental fee. Unfortunately the city of New York insists that bicycle rental kiosks must be controlled by an entity that is not Uber and thus I am not granted the level of full control that is necessary for me to truly optimize the city. No one benefits, no one at all.
