17: On Vandalism


On today's show, Horace and Oliver talk through the challenges that vandalism pose to the shared micromobility model. Specifically we cover: - the core drivers of vandalism of such fleets, and how this compares to historical parallels. - the implications for capex vs. opex - the calculations that operators are making to ensure that the services still function well. Apologies about the echo in the podcast. We ran into audio issues.

On today's episode, Horace and Oliver dig deep into the evolution of business models in transport, and how micromobility lays the foundation for the next great shift of interoperable, efficient, low-cost transport services powered by blockchain. I think we just hit peak hype words, but bear with us! We cover: - how the car was the first great bundling of transport ‘jobs-to-be-done’ into a single option - kickstarting the first major productisation of transport...

14: Dediu’s Law and Franchising Micromobility


In this episode we discuss the recent Bird Platform announcement, why this was predictable given the dynamics of the market, and how franchising might evolve in the future. We also cover: - Dediu’s Law: Horace’s thesis that we’ll see 10x growth annually for the next 5-6 years in micromobility trip numbers. - how challenges related to social technologies like local bureaucracy/current scooter caps will be overcome...
