Uber, Periscope and Mayor of Calgary

Who woulda thunk it?

This video leaves me gasping gape-mouthed, for multiple reasons. Not the least of which is unbeknownst-to-the-passenger live-streaming of a conversation with the driver…okay putting THAT aside, the next stunning reality is that the Mayor of Calgary would sit in a car with a complete stranger, have this conversation, and at the end of it, ask what the device on the dashboard is for…ahhh…. You’re the mayor of Calgary, you went to MIT, and you sat down in a ride share vehicle with a unknown, electronic gadget staring you in the face and didn’t ASK “what’s this?” till the end of the ride? Then there’s the Calgary mayor calls UBER CEO a dick, then the Calgary mayor discusses holes in Uber’s driver screening…and on and on and on and on. And with Uber making an appearance in season 2 of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, thereby solving her financial problem, and all the conflict arising – not only here in Canada, but around the world with Uber…well, like I said, this video leaves me gasping gape-mouthed. What do you think?…there are so many layers to this.

Ya gotta love this ride-sharing driver though!

Watch the video here…

…by the way, at the end of the article this links to, there is the full 30-minute video of the conversation between Naheed Nenshi, Mayor of Calgary, Alberta, (yes Canada), and the rideshare driver.

  • Supper on the Fly
    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›

    Last minute choice! Salmon and chopped egg with garlic scapes and chives, piled on slices of crispy light and dark rye toast slathered with melted butter!! Yum yum. For the salmon spread mix together: 1 diced garlic scape with 1…Read more ›
  • Three Sisters Chili 
    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
