What's new in the shared economy? over ping pong and beverage.

It sounds like Airbnb will be legal in PDX soon, and they'll have a huge building in town. They're going public soon. Are they really worth 10 billion?

Spinlister is again sponsoring, so bring a guest and have a complimentary beverage. We play pong until 630, then chat for an hour. Bring your game and any shared economy gripes, ideas and good vibes. If you haven't done so, check out Spinlister.com and rent out your skis, snowboards, and bikes to others visiting PDX. And rent from them when traveling around, including Europe. Great deals. Great gear. As usual, I'll have some shwag on hand from Spinlister, plus some old stuff from my Airbnb days that I just found in the garage. If anyone has ideas for meetups, please shoot. In May, perhaps we will meet later in the evening.

    That was fun (and the fish and chips were decent, too). I'd like to see more discussion about non-profit and informal "shared economy" structures as well, the type of system that is directed by the actual users.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
