I love Uber and Air BNB as a consumer for their responsiveness and ease of user experience, and I don't feel that I'm in the minority. I think instead of trying to outlaw services like these, we need legislation or programs that encourage established businesses to innovate in new ways. Hard to think that Yellow cab or any of the other franchise Giants haven't had the budget to pull an Uber-like experience off. There are tax incentives for starting a new business, couldn't we invest in encouraging businesses to make life easier for our constituents? Example: A "make your user experience awesome" grant .
