Uber Manchester
I’ve been following the Uber updates throughout the day on twitter and couldn’t help, but think this…

Taxi Drivers Technology

First technology came for high street retailers, and I did nothing – Because I was not a high street retailer

Then technology came for the local newspapers, and I did nothing – Because I was not a local newspaper

Then technology came for the taxi drivers, and I did nothing – Because I was not a taxi driver

Then online came for my industry – and it was too late to change

Technology is changing the face of most industries and it’s those that are proactive rather than reactive that are surviving and prospering

Think about that for a while

    Stretching a point to quote one of my heroes Pastor Niemuller, but very well put all the same. The print unions suffered because they didn’t grasp technology and allowed Murdoch to set the agenda, but maybe I’m still a bit of an old class warrior!

    Great post Alex,

    Definitely thought-provoking .. kind of struck a chord with a quotation I heard yesterday ..””The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there” – somebody called L. P. Hartley apparently .. a novel adapted by Harold Pinter.

    if I sound like I know what I’m talking about– I don’t! ..

  4. Well said I argued the same point at sascon last week and blogged about it here https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140530153320-33041212-what-is-all-the-fuss-about-it-s-probably-a-point-of-principle-but-whose?_mSplash=1 on LinkedIn – it’s all about principles now – not whether we can make innovation disruptive but should we 🙂

    No one notices the tanks of change until they are rolling down the streets

    By the by – justaxi is here to help the taxi industry rally against uber
