Travis Kalanick has resigned as CEO of Uber,
the cab-replacement company he co-founded. He was forced out by unhappy shareholders.
Why do I care?
Because he created a jerk culture that was evident in its entry to Arkansas. They ran roughshod over taxi regulatory rules and employed high-dollar lobbying to quickly bend the Arkansas legislature to its will. The company also became known worldwide for reports of poisonous misogyny, taking advantage of drivers, invading privacy of riders, evading law enforcement and otherwise adopting the corporate persona of a schoolyard bully. Oh, and it has yet to report a profit.
Karma's a bitch. You might have read today that Uber is finally going to build a tip for drivers into Uber billing.
