Automatic TRANSCRIPT

He's been up to over the past few years but mainly throughout 2017 because that was a a truly tumultuous year an uber is history but i thought it would be helpful to begin by looking at the cofounder of uber whose behaviour at times seemed to be closely aligned with some of the more criticised elements of the company's overall culture this is a guy who has received a lot of attention both positive and negative throughout the years and that cofounder is travis kalanick he is a bit of a character i mean he he definitely has earned himself a reputation among the silicon valley as someone who is really aggressive and really visionary in many ways but who is he where did he come from and how did the idea of uber come about well spoiler alert the story i'm about to tell you is only half the tail this is the official story of obre the one that the company lists as its own history and it traces everything back to a cold winters evening in france in two thousand eight but the truth ends up being a little more complicated but let's start with kalanick so he attended the university of california los angeles he majored in computer engineering but he never graduated he dropped out just a few months away from graduating in that final year in 1998 and he went on to go work as part of the original team behind a business called scour s c o u r now that might not sound familiar to you and that would not be a big surprise because it didn't last that long within a few years of its founding it was obliterated out of existence but i'll explain scour was a peertopeer file sharing service now that means you could download some software onto your computer and that would allow you to designate specific boulders on your computer hard drive as shared boulders which would be shared with the rest of the network so other people who had also downloaded that same software would have access to those shared folders and you would have acts.
