Uber is a mega-information platform with live moving parts. Car service is just one vehicle for expression. This is just the beginning.
Update because clever fellow dinged me for not answering the question directly. If you consider what Mark P Xu Neyer said and what uber actually is / can be versus what it appears to be, the normal modes of exit seem silly. It’s hard to imagine that the person asking really didn’t know the four main ways one can exit: IPO, acquisition, stay private, go out of business as Travis Kalanick deftly mentioned. The more interesting discussion is what private looks like. Can they evolve to be a modern day Koch?
I only bothered to respond because the answers share a tacit agreement that uber is about car service. That’s kind of like saying walmart is about tshirts. They sold a bunch of those in the early days.
