Airbnb's hidden impact on SF - San Francisco Chronicle

Airbnb's hidden impact on SF
San Francisco Chronicle
Critics fear that some Airbnb hosts run full-time hotels, thus reducing the city's housing supply and changing the character of residential neighborhoods.
Shreyas Goswami's insight:

I selected this article by Bryan Kramer because it absolutely speaks to me and many of you!

 

Today’s modern day curator is a curator of knowledge. We have come to rely on the best to tell us what is good and what isn’t. Their history of shares heightens their status in some cases to social connoisseur, a title not easily earned.

 

Bryan asks this question: Have you ever read something that made you stop and think... and you saved it? You're a collector. The question is, how do you move from collector, to connoisseur?

 

There are 5 great takeaways in this piece......

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Understand the Shelf Life - News will always serve a purpose, but today’s news only last seconds.To build a story around something that drives a different perspective is what drives new opinions, conversations and communities. What you share reflects on your beliefs, so add something that lasts longer than a retweet.

TIME
Sharing is something people generally do out of the goodness of their hearts, and in pretty much all sharing economy scenarios, some money is changing hands.
Shreyas Goswami's insight:

Excellent piece that looks into the realities of the "Sharing Economy".. Expect more such pieces attracting limelight in the coming days.

A smart shirt that tracks your health and will recharge during washing

A smart shirt that tracks your health and will recharge during washing | testing magazine | Scoop.it

French company Cityzen Sciences won the CES 2014 Inclusive Innovation in Everyday Health award for the development of a smart-sensing fabric woven with integral micro-sensors that read body heat, respiration rate, heart rate, and motion through location via GPS.

 

The fabric combines sensors, fabric, distributed computation, and small battery-powered transmitter into a unit that links in real time to a smartphone.

 

Apparently, they're also working on a recharging system for the fabric that will receive most of its energy when the clothing is washed. Until it's implemented, you'll have to set the spin cycle to 24 hours*
