Uber is a service with centralization and traceability of actors. It has little relation to what is being done here. I don't particularly see the relevance except both being internet based.
I agree with Xeroc. Off topic.
If you had an idea about how Uber could be decentralized and avoid protectionism/crony capitalism etc then that'd be a great conversation.
This is important because of the following
1) Government regulation coming down on an innovation causing them not to go into a market. (take away for us: being prepared against regulation, something im nailing into the heads of everyone, and hopefully BM)
2) An innovation similar to us it being an innovation and we being an innovation.
3) no 3.
Where is the offtopic forum?
Off topic = Random discussion at bottom of top section.
Everyone here who has been around and "gets it" knows what can happen. This is just another example that is vaguely applicable.
Government has also been going after b2b but decentralization is obviously not going to fix that. Thats not news to the aware people here.
Here is the basic problem with this thread. This whole ecosystem (Bitshares) has been based around avoiding intervention by third parties. It isn't just being trustless, but about being immune to malevolent and protectionist entities. You come around saying you need to "nail into BM's head" something that he has spent years thinking about and designing around. Does that not strike you as an utter and complete waste of his time at this point and the rest of the community ?
I really am not trying to be a dick, but I get the feeling that if people don't say "wooah slow it down buddy", you will not even attempt to filter your posts. Every post that you make that provides no humor/info (value) is a waste of dozens of people's time.
If you want to be helpful and make infographics and market bitshares, then PLEASE do so. Bitshares can use anyone who does this. So in that regard I want you to stick around and be helpful.
Personally, there are times I start making a post, then I realize... Gamey, you really have nothing to contribute. I then click the back arrow and avoid wasting the time of others. Maybe consider that ?
Your post per day ratio is likely 3x the next person. Please take this into consideration.
