1976-Uberland: How Algorithms Are Rewriting the Rules of Work w/ Alex Rosenblat

Alex Rosenblat

Researcher Alex Rosenblat joined Sam Seder to discuss her new book Uberland.

“How Uber’s incentive structure inserts itself into drivers’ lives despite the initial promise of super-flexible hours. How conscious are drivers of the false-promise of “ride-sharing” as far as democratizing the economy. The regional difference between professionalized cities like NYC and smaller cities with less of an entrenched taxi industry. How and why Uber sells the idea that drivers are entrepreneurs.”
