Inside Uber's self-driving car mess
The company's self-driving division is in a "mini civil war," according to insiders.

http://www.recode.net/2017/3/24/14737438/uber-self-driving-turmoil-otto-travis-kalanick-civil-war

tl;dr of the article is that the tech is a mess; the heads are stupid arrogant a holes, the organization is shit and engineers are angry, pissed, and leaving

But also, Kalanick seems to view Google and Waze as existential threats

"The minute it was clear to us that our friends in Mountain View were going to be getting in the ride-sharing space, we needed to make sure there is an alternative [self-driving car]," he said, referring to Google, in an interview. "Because if there is not, we're not going to have any business."
go figure.

Anyone who follows this knows the tech is kinda a joke. They need level 5 SDC's to replace us and those are at least a decade away, probably longer.

Was talking to some insider today he confirms it's a mess in there but the engineers have their hands tied they hold a lot of paper stocks & cant transfer them if they decide leave the company.
