Kalanick ‘has to go’

19 Nov, 2014

In a Feacebook post, Scoble says Kalanick should resign:

When I first started work at Microsoft an exec pulled me aside and told me how I could get fired. Pissing off journalists and analysts were very high on the list. This is how culture gets translated.

It is why I now believe Travis Kalanick has to go. It is the only way to reboot the culture there and have Uber regain its loved status…This company has deeply wounded itself. The investors should insist that Travis go. Then it should repair its relationship with Sarah Lacy and it should be made clear that being anti journalist or anti woman will not be tolerated at all. This wound is a lot deeper than I thought and IS changing consumer behavior. Travis, if I were you I would resign and help your company heal.
