I spend a little bit of time exploring why the companies that were doing smartphone ride-hailing before Uber, why they failed.
I first met Linda Lawrence in March 1965 in the green room of 'Ready Steady Go!', the British pop TV show. Linda was a friend of one of the co-hosts. She had an art-school vibe, and after a brief conversation, I asked her to dance to a soul record playing. As we jazz danced, I fell in love.
