@Kat But they, won't, will they? They're going to make some cryptocurrency, smart-contract monstrosity.
@lynnesbian Our then-PM, of the tory party, was visibly more excited to talk about the Rugby World Cup after the Canterbury Earthquakes, and looked completely uninterested in fixing shit. We still haven't fully recovered from that government's mismanagement of the rebuild.
actually hot wet take re: "going around" uber/lyft
@Torie Didn't taxi services already have stricter vetting? I never really understood the appeal/advantage of Uber, so I may not understand what I'm talking about.
