Agreed on all points.  Government should set minimum safety standards, and get out of the price-fixing business altogether when it comes to taxis.

This quote from the councilmember's statement is telling:

"Establishing a minimum fare is important to distinguish premium sedan service from traditional taxicab service and to prevent sedans from directly competing with or undercuting taxicabs."

Why is it important for government to prevent competition? Because a special interest has them in their pockets?

TWiST #212 with Shervin Pishevar of Menlo Ventures

0:00-2:00 Welcome, very happy to have you on the show today, Shervin.
2:00-3:30 How do you describe yourself at this point? What do you do?
3:30-5:30 So you recently went to Egypt with Sean Penn?
5:30-11:15 Thank you to SurveyMonkey for sponsoring the program!
11:15-12:30 How does this relate to entrepreneurship, the situation in the middle east?
12:30-14:15 Didn’t the Arab Spring start because a small business owner’s livelihood was compromised?
14:15-16:30 Is entrepreneurship in a way a religious or spiritual experience for you?
16:30-18:45 So you gave a chunk of your stock to the charity Invisible Children?
18:45-20:15 It takes amazing sacrifices to make the companies, so how do you achieve a balance in life?
20:15-21:15 Are you an investor in Path or just a fan?
21:15-22:15 How much better is their second version?
22:15-24:00 How do you go from having your app panned just one year ago to now being the talk of the town?
24:00-26:15 How does an entrepreneur have the courage to admit that their an idea is a failure and put it to bed rather than flame out?
26:15-28:00 The genius of Path is that, where Facebook turned the world upside down and made everything public, Dave (Morin, the founder) said forget growth, we want privacy.
28:00-31:15 Thank you to MailChimp for sponsoring the program!
31:15-35:45 What was the toughest moment of your career?
35:45-36:30 So you’ve had some experience, gotten a thicker skin?
36:30-38:15 It’s almost your brand to be relentlessly positive, isn’t it? Were you always this way?
38:15-42:00 Can your parents even comprehend how much of an American dream you’re living?
42:00-44:15 Tyler: I see you regularly checking in at the White House, Shervin. What’s going on in those meetings?
44:15-47:00 Were you too tired to start another company? Is that why you became a VC?
47:00-48:45 When you’re talking to an entrepreneur for the first time, how long does it take you to know whether or not you want to invest in them?
48:45-50:30 The story in the Wall Street Journal about there being too many incubators--true or not true?
50:30-52:30 So you think the incubators are catalysts, but they’re not the sole way that companies should be--or can be--born?
52:30-55:15 Tyler recounts the first time that Jason and Shervin ever met--and didn’t exactly get along.
55:15-55:30 Thank you so much for joining us today, Shervin. And thank you to MailChimp and Survey Monkey for sponsoring the show.

Entrepreneurship is a religion?!(moment 14:08 in the video)
It has its own belief, its own followers, followers should have such strong belief in what they do that they are willing to do every sacrifice to make it a reality. Maybe the biggest difference is that in Entrepreneurship the goal is to push human race forward in a way that makes sense for PUBLIC by their WISDOM and COMMON SENSE. What do you think?
