[@] Travis Shrugged: The creepy, dangerous ideology behind Silicon Valley’s Cult of Disruption
A very interesting view from Paul Carr on the startups out to disrupt markets, like Uber and AirBnB. In their desire of going against established players, are they good for us?
Laws don’t exist merely to frustrate the business ambitions of coastal hipsters: They also exist to protect the more vulnerable members of society.
And anyway, they do it for a reason:
A Disruptive company might very well succeed in exposing government crooks lining their pockets exploiting outdated laws, but that’s only so the Disruptor can line his own pockets through the absence of those same laws.
