Uber just gave David Plouffe’s job to a top Google exec | Brian Fung | WashPost.com

Uber just gave David Plouffe’s job to a top Google exec | Brian Fung | WashPost.com | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Turns out that helping to manage a global logistics company is a bit more complicated than running a political campaign.

Just eight months ago, Uber hired former Obama adviser David Plouffe to turn the company's image around. The private car-hailing service was being battered in the media for its numerous public missteps, and a faceoff with taxicab incumbents had grown pretty nasty.

Now, however, Plouffe is being replaced by top Google executive Rachel Whetstone as senior vice president of policy and communications. Uber said Wednesday that Plouffe will adopt a different role with the company, taking a position on its board and becoming a strategic adviser rather than being involved with day-to-day operations. Plouffe will continue working full-time on a broad portfolio that includes business, legal and policy issues.

The sudden switch-up hints at how quickly Uber itself is evolving. When Plouffe came on board, Uber desperately needed a crisis communications team. Not long after he joined, BuzzFeed reported that the company was targeting journalists who'd criticized the firm. Plouffe began appearing on cable TV shows to tout "the good we're bringing to cities," and preparing academic-style studies linking Uber to decreases in drunk driving.

Since then, much of the public backlash against Uber appears to have eased, and it and other ridesharing companies have successfully pressed for friendlier regulations in more than a dozen states. But the company still faces significant regulatory hurdles in many places, particularly abroad. In South Korea, for instance, Uber chief executive Travis Kalanick was recently charged by police with operating an illegal service.

I'll check who when I can and edit it here when I have time...I think it was Freepress.net , Demand Progress or EFF if you have time to research it for yourself. Maybe... Fight for the Future...

Adblockers are immoral and mobile networks should know better

Adblockers are immoral and mobile networks should know better | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
As an editor, I feel resentful of people who enjoy my work but proudly run an ablocker to starve my content of revenue. Now the Financial Times reports that European mobile networks are planning to offer ad-blocking as a service to their customers.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is an article that is also an ad that gives voice to an ad company and tells the story of why ads matter. Even personal bloggers will use ads to increase the chance their blog will someday also provide some income for the time they give to writing their content.
