Thanks to your support, the Division of Standards released an update this evening that Uber has been green lighted. It appears they just learned the National Institute of Standards is already evaluating GPS for certification and therefore Uber can receive a temporary operating certificate to continue operation. Great news for everyone looking for a comfortable ride that shows up at the appointed time, has a courteous driver, accepts debit or credit and has working AC.
But what if there hadn't been a rapid public outcry? Is it OK to stifle innovation if no one notices? Should government serve the incumbents or the citizens ?
It's amazing to live in a country where our voices can be heard and those voices make a difference. It's frustrating that without vigilance the best of interest of the people behind those voices is not always served.
