Interesting article on the "sharing economy"
Came across this just now and it was an interesting read.
It looks like people are going to clearing houses to rent out more than just their homes and cars. I like the possibilities of tapping into the space capacity of things and spaces people already own. Think CES in Vegas where there are no hotel rooms available, but check on craigslist and there are plenty of examples of excess capacity being offered in peoples homes/apartments.
