So let me continue with this tangent. Let's say an upstart does well in Austin and uber decides to come back in with massive discounting or incentives and steals drivers. Maybe the upstart could appeal to the decency of the people to stay with them. But in this Walmart society where everything needs to be cheap, where new friends are one click away, I have a hard time seeing an upstart surviving the focused assault of an uber.

Now if Lyft went for it now, it might be different because it also has vast resources.

Good discussion and analysis. We say Wal Mart society, but consumers still spend more on things they care about.

They just don't care about fingerprinted drivers. Which I get. I don't care either. Women, pussy men, and governments always think you can make things 100% safe. Ya can't.

Background checks and reviews make it really, really safe, let's say 99.99% sure you'll get what you want when you want it at an agreed upon price. No reason to add in a bunch more costs and infringement for an extra 0.001% safety. This isn't Venezuela.

We could set speed limits to 5 mph and have a safer society, probably save thousands of lives per year. But that would be dumb.
