This discussion with Bradley Tusk, an Uber advisor, about how Airbnb is making mistakes in how they deal with local governments by suing San Francisco over the enforcement of legislation they helped create was somewhat interesting… I was just starting to think this Tusk guy was smart and then he mentions the medallion system and it’s obvious he has no clue how the taxi industry works, just talking out of a hole in his ass.
Tusk may know about tech and VC speculation, but he knows shit about the taxi industry.
Medallion holders are the working class stiffs, you fucking asshole. The owners of the cab companies may be scum, or just ignorant old men, but it’s a sign of the rampant arrogance of Uber to discuss things like taxi medallions with no understanding of them whatsoever.
As always, tech reporting fails to be real journalism…
Click bait: the new normal:
