How would you define your role in the "sharing economy?" (founder, user, investor, media, lurker, academic, other)

founder, interested geek, fun + art-minded graphic designer

Do you have a better name for "the sharing economy" or "collaborative consumption"?

I like the question. Fewer syllables would be better. I suggest simply, "Sharing." All the other words or add-ons are redundant. Sharing is necessarily a type of economy, and collaborative consumption just means sharing anyway.

What is the last "sharing site" you have actually used... (none is an ok answer)?

Members of my site share things all the time! And in my handmade-spam emails, I use all kinds of cool art I find on the Internet.

Is there anything you are willing to lend right now... (could be a physical item, a space, a ride, your time, expertise, etc)

Any art or design anyone sees on my site ( you can rip and use to any degree and in any way that you want. Just be polite and let people know about me and The Shoplift in return. :)


In 2012 I created The Shoplift, an underground shoppingclub where vintage finds and handmade goods rub shoulders with runway fashion. Say hi at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn or check out anytime.
