What Happens When the Internet Swamps Local Regulation?

An interesting piece on NPR today about how the web-based Uber taxi hailing service is making life easier for travelers … whether or not the vehicle happens to be licensed locally.

This is very similar to the circumstances with Park at my House, which is available here but is probably a zoning violation.

What’s a local government to do? DC set up a sting for the unlicensed taxis, maybe we’ll have ‘test parkers’ checking your zoning map location?
