#airbnb is a force to look out for in the travel industry.  I'm wondering once they get a forum ala Trip Advisor how much dent they can make.

"Travelers are more and more seeking authenticity and wish to leave the beaten paths for their holidays. Visit the Sagrada Family in Barcelona, the Colosseum in Rome or the Eiffel Tower in Paris, certainly these are touristic musts, the sights you can’t miss out on… but we’ve seen more original! How about visiting cities guided by a local through various activities? Exciting and passionate people want to help you discover the world differently during your vacation. Getting good tips about local restaurants and bars is also guaranteed!"

▶ Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky on Other Industries of the Sharing Economy - YouTube

Airbnb does business in 34,000 cities, has a valuation of over 10 billion dollars, and in a very short time has disrupted the world of hospitality and travel. Its co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky envisions the future city as a place where sharing is front and center — where people become micro-entrepreneurs, the local mom and pops will flourish once again, where space isn't wasted, but shared, and more of almost everything is produced, except waste. But the journey from here to there won't be all smooth sailing. What are the ups and downs of the sharing economy, as businesses like Airbnb confront critiques about regulation, economic development, and fairness? What role might businesses play in creating more shareable, more livable cities? How will the sharing economy, with its de-emphasis on ownership, be a tool for addressing urban inequality?
