In addition to your good story on Uber economics and regulation, the thing that I miss in Key West is Uber’s convenience. When you arrive at your destination, you just get out. No fumbling for cash or 3 minutes in some ancient ink-based credit card ritual. The drivers are very incented to earn their 5 stars for each ride, and their cumulative rating is visible before you get in the cab. Uber now or Uber later. It is a superior, digital approach to a protected industry that has refused to innovate for far too long.
