Submission + - Uber Can't Keep Driving Itself (

mirandakatz writes: It's been nearly two months since Travis Kalanick stepped down as CEO from Uber, and in that time he's also been hit with a lawsuit from Benchmark Capital. The drama is running high at Uber HQ—and the company can't keep running itself forever. In fact, as Jessi Hempel writes at Backchannel, doing so is affecting its future prospects: "The lawsuit, paired with a public appeal to Uber’s employee base, will likely slow down the CEO search even more. And that’s a bad thing for Uber, and anyone else who once believed the company had a chance at being the global transportation and logistics behemoth that its disgraced cofounder originally envisioned. Self-driving cars are hard enough. A self-driving company is a recipe for a wreck."
