Shared economy APPS such as UBER, are forces that dis-intermediates—as we olds used to say—transportation, but one that creates value for itself, its drivers, and its users, by developing a new layer that integrates them all with maximum utility.

A very talented developer once told that the secret to a world-beating service like Dropbox was to make something very, very complicated seem devastatingly simple.

I read a tweet from Anti-Fragility author Nassim Taleb that said, “To ‘Uberize’, remove the middleman, theme of the times.”
