Disruptor rules?

I had to smile at an article last week about Uber. Sadiq Khan was taking a pop at them for their behaviour. Rightly so it seems to me.

But the article also suggested he said,

“I want companies that abide by the rules, I want companies that innnovate, harbour new technologies, I want disruptive technology coming to London but you’ve got to play by the rules”.

Oh dear.

I am not sure that Mr Khan understands disruptors? The point is they don’t play by the rules. Innovators work because they break the rules. Constraints are the worst thing you can suggest to those who create new stuff. New thinking generally has to have a healthy disregard of the norm.
