So this actually worked. What they saw when they used their phone on a stoplight were just four very simple sentences saying: “This is bottom up. Everybody wants to talk about Uber and Airbnb and Bitcoin. We have one specific question. Is it ok for private non-professional license people two carry passengers and charge them for it?” So this was a very narrow thing. We didn’t talk about sharing economy. Then we say: “A month from now we will have a national debate. We will invite Uber but the agenda is decided by you guys.” And then the open data is published for independent analysis and we guarantee deliberation.
