I've been intrigued by the recent problems with Uber. In fact the problem became personal when I was caught up in the recent taxi driver strike in Brussels, as a reaction against Uber. It's not just a Brussels problem, as you probably know.
But notwithstanding, Uber is an interesting case study as a disruptive technology, creating a step change in thinking. Amazon fall in the same category, as bookshops become a threatened species.
Is GIS centre stage in this, or does it just have a walk-on part? How much does it depend on the quality of the actors?
Might GIS and Location provide the catalyst for new business models? What if location stopped being an add-on but rather became central to new thinking?
