It’s the Culture, Stupid

So this went viral in March: Reflecting On One Very, Very Strange Year at Uber. As a direct consequence the founder and CEO (among others) was forced to resign, and I wouldn’t be surprised as more changes happen as the adults with the money hold the dude-bros accountable.

I’m mostly not sorry for them, because being a dick deserves to the rewards of hubris. Also, I’m looking forward to the day that Lyft come to Calgary, because I will always prefer to do business with people (and companies who are of course made up of people) who actually have values.

Every business needs to make money. I have no problem with that. But if they only reason you started a company was to make money, you’re going to have a hard time.
