I was going to call this post “The non-existing work ethic in the Arab world”, but then I reconsidered. For one thing, it would be arrogant of me to presume that my personal experience with certain sections of the Arab world is representative of the region in it’s entirety. And for another, I have no way of comparing with any other region of the world, since I’ve only worked in the Arab world (my stays in sub-saharan Africa and the US where before I had a full-time job).
I guess this is a rather strange topic to choose for my first blog post after my long blogosphere hiatus, but I feel very strongly about this. First, some background. Uber, for those who have been living under a rock for the last couple of years, is a technology company that is challenging cabs around the world.
