Need Help? Uber... For Services?
What amazes me most about Uber is the fact that they do one thing really well, and it has nothing to do with transportation.
When I look at the success of Uber, what I see is something much more important than simply providing transportation. What I see is a company that knows exactly how to connect people looking for a service (a ride), to people nearby who are ready, willing and able to provide that service, right now. It's a game changer for millions of people who use it to earn money with their spare time. It works so well, a lot of them now do it full time.
This makes me wonder, why stop there? Why not use their platform to let people who need other services find people nearby willing to do it? For example, let's say you need somebody to shovel snow, wash your car, or mow your lawn? I'm guessing there are millions of people who would love to find people to do those things, and an equal number of people who would gladly offer those kinds of services. All Uber has to do is connect them using the same technology they use to find drivers who are available nearby.
