> [...] CEO Travis Kalanick has made reference on a number of occasions to the fact that the driver is the most expensive part of its financial model, not to mention being the source of an ongoing fight over whether such drivers should be employees or contractors. Uber recently agreed to pay $100 million to settle a lawsuit over driver status.
> "When there's no other dude in the car, the cost of taking an Uber anywhere becomes cheaper than owning a vehicle. So the magic there is, you basically bring the cost below the cost of ownership for everybody, and then car ownership goes away," Kalanick said at the Code Conference in 2014, shortly after Google unveiled its self-driving car prototype.
"Additionally, and unsurprisingly, stress addicts are also going to have a hard time with ‘down time’ e.g. transition periods between seasons. They are going to crave training to the point of feeling ‘not good’ during periods of extended recovery. This effect becomes more pronounced the higher the training status of the athlete."
"[F]irst, a little cold, hard truth: If your reward centers are deeply tied to stress then (perhaps paradoxically) removing stressors from your life is initially going to suck!"
"For example, it is not uncommon for hyper-stressed individuals who begin a regular meditation program to feel sad to the point of tears in their initial exposures. A reduction in sympathetic stimulation is, initially, not going to be pleasant."
His context is athletes, but, as he puts it, "Dopamine doesn’t know or particularly care about what behavior it’s rewarding", so I suppose this also applies to other forms of stress.
