Strategy and Culture as Dimension of Resilience: Uber’s Strategy Lacks Cultural Awareness 

Will Über push back?  Of course:

Talk about remarketing pushback.  With what looks to me like a little remarketing of Government-in-a-box and ten commandments later, “resilience” seems to be off and running.

But that’s the thing about nation-states:  they exist for primarily that sort of self-protection – not just in terms of national security but also economic security and cultural security – if you will.  That’s why China blocks Facebook and Twitter while protecting Weibo:  Beijing’s attitude is, just because you pioneered this business model elsewhere doesn’t give you the right to own our market too.

But in a way, Facebook and Twitter does “own our market too”. I mean the fact that “Facebook” exists in China, in any  shape or form, is a big plus for Facebook. It’s like doubling down on a sure bet. The “House” may own the game in China, but the insurgency is alive and well here in the States.

And even if Facebook goes by the way of MySpace, there is at least, like Über, a source code left behind and locked inside another economy.

That is if Über left anything behind in Germany, such as an idea.
