Great post, M.G. Siegler. It really is incredible how much of an impact Uber has made on culture. Not only has it changed how we travel but it has sparked a new way of thinking and questioning that challenges the very infrastructure we’re used to.
What we’ve noticed over the last couple of years in mobile application development is that everyone wants to create the next “Uber of something”, as we’ve coined it. App ideas range from good to — well — not good.
But it’s certainly evident that Uber has set the new precedent that there is no precedent. Infrastructure can be changed with innovation and courage.
