Hitching a ride

An interesting story of innovation against bureaucracy from the Wall Street Journal.
Using a smart phone to get a ride? You'll be doing more of it soon, despite the government and its friends.
What has Mr. Kalanick learned so far from his Uber experience? "The regulatory systems in place disincentive innovation. It's intense to fight the red tape." His advice for others: "Stand by your principles and be comfortable with confrontation. So few people are, so when the people with the red tape come, it becomes a negotiation."
