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."
