    Nicely written. As someone who’s thus far in life been generally too poor even to contemplate taxis (at least in the 9 years I lived in London), let alone hotels, I think these are fantastic developments, and among the more evidently positive changes brought about by the internet.
    Also, presumably a lot of people (or at least some, like me!) are using these sorts of service only because they are now affordable – whereas they weren’t beforehand – so it’s not necessarily taking customers away from traditional hotels and taxi companies. (Or, at least, not all the new ‘sharing economy’ customers are ones lost by the ‘old economy’.)
