I’ve written another super fucking obvious article because I had nothing to do tonight but fuck it, I wrote it anyways.

Consumers should generally go for the cheapest option when it comes to transport.

So do a non-profit/co-op version of Uber where the a very small % goes towards developing the technology and the rest goes right to the drivers with lots of transparency.

They could achieve lower prices for the consumers and the consumer also knows that the majority of their money is going to the driver, not Uber.

Seems like the drivers don’t really realize how much power they could have.

If the drivers get a bigger cut and it’s cheaper for the consumer, I don’t see how it couldn’t work.

I’ve thought long and hard about the right size of our company. I thought maybe I would walk you through why I’ve settled with this guiding idea:

Never compromise productivity & sustainability for the sake of feeling bigger.

Freshout was 35 people about a year ago. It’s currently 25 people.

in my experience, the biggest difference in an engineer isn’t their technical level.

it’s whether they have an idea of how their work fits into the product’s goal and what they do to inch the entire ship towards it.
