What's going on at WeWork and Uber?

Uber’s CEO backtracks on Khashoggi remarks. Dara Khosrowshahi expressed regret over referring to the killing of the Saudi dissident journalist as a “mistake” during a recent interview, NBC News reports. Saudi Arabia is one of Uber’s largest shareholders.

Uber chief called the murder of Jamal Khashoggi 'a serious mistake'

I may be Dara's biggest public critic, but I really don't think he meant to dismiss the Kashoggi murder. Dara's a lot things I don't love: slow, bureaucratic, process obsessed, lacking in vision and boldness but in the two+ years he's been running Uber, I've never seen him be cruel, mean or insensitive

There are things Uber doesn't deserve a do over for, but his apology and clarification here seem very genuine to me.

Dara Khosrowshahi on his worst day is still better than Travis Kalanick on his worst. A murder is more than a mistake, but Travis committed a million faux pas under his reign and never felt he needed to apologise for any of them.

The un-CEO. WeWork wants T-Mobile's John Legere to be its new CEO, the Wall Street Journal reports.

WeWork in Talks to Hire T-Mobile CEO John Legere

What a boys club! So SoftBank has been a big investor in Sprint for nearly a decade and they brought in Marcelo Claure to run Sprint about 5 years back. Claure and SoftBank's Masayoshi Son get along really well so Son had Claure come on as WeWork's COO. Now it appears that the Sprint-T-Mobile merger

Claure and SoftBank's Masayoshi Son get along really well so Son had Claure come on as WeWork's COO. Now it appears that the Sprint-T-Mobile merger has brough LEgere into SoftBank world and now they're looking and shuffling him over there. So incestuous.... Must be the hair!

Worth remembering that who's CEO explains at best a very small fraction of company performance, at least for mature firms. WeWork is younger, and there are exceptions to every rule, but in most companies CEOs aren't as influential as CEOs themselves like to think.

It make T-mobile away from innovation.

Would it make John un-carrier(ed)?

  • It's crazy how deeply ingrained white supremacy is. I look forward to living in a country in which more voices get heard.

  • this is an interesting article but let me give another perspective. I have 6 granddaughters: white, brown, black with differing orientations btw. to me MAGA means that they will have more not fewer choices. they can be more than Black, White, Hispanic, Gay. the identity politics of today sticks them

    this is an interesting article but let me give another perspective. I have 6 granddaughters: white, brown, black with differing orientations btw. to me MAGA means that they will have more not fewer choices. they can be more than Black, White, Hispanic, Gay. the identity politics of today sticks them in a slot. the fundamental philosophy of this country is that all are created equal & we have over 200 years of working that direction. I will ever argue to keep us pushing forward not regressing to where we had to keep ' in our place' a shared history with all its warts is essential to reaching our goal of opportunity for all not just for 'my group.' When anybody can succeed, we all succeed. (forgive the soapbox please)

  • We welcome all legal immigrants but not illegal immigration. Don’t thing you’re narrative is accurate.
