Uber removed blog post from data science team that examined link between prostitution and rides | VentureBeat | Mobile | by Chris O'Brien

Another busy week for Uber's PR team

"Neff said she went looking for the post after hearing a recent Marketplace story that mentioned another notorious Uber blog post that had also been taken down called: “Rides of Glory.”

As Marketplace recalls:

“The company examined its rider data, sorting it for anyone who took an Uber between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. on a Friday or Saturday night. Then it looked at how many of those same people took another ride about four to six hours later – from at or near the previous nights’ drop-off point. Yes, Uber can and does track one-night stands. Consider it the Uber equivalent of the walk of shame.”"
