On receiving an interview request from Uber

Yesterday, I received a LinkedIn email from a talent scout at Uber 
asking if I'd like to work on their core infrastructure.

My reply:

"Thanks for reaching out, but this is not something I am interested in. 
A bit on principle, as I won't work with Uber on the grounds that

* their apps are not free software

* I don't sympathize with their undermining of the taxi business, 
replacing trained and insured drivers with what is effectively what used 
to be called "pirate taxis" paying "app taxes" to an American company.

All the best to you too,

The first reason is really sufficient as I won't work with proprietary 
software if I can help it (and right now I can, thankfully), but the 
second would also be sufficient in itself if their app *were* free software.
