At the heart of this operation lies real-time ridesharing, enabling people with private cars to share a ride they are already taking, with others traveling the same route. The benefit of these rides will not be commercial profit, but rather, sharing the costs of the drive as well as experiencing the joy which comes from social matching between driver and rider. Not only will rider and driver share the expense of the journey, but it will create friendships and relationships between like-minded people while reducing the amount of traffic on the road.
BeerBergman's insight:

Borrowing from Kant's ideas that only non-commercial relations between people are morally "good" (Picard and Buchberger, 2013) La'Zooz uses the same discourse as Coachsurfing and other mediating non-commercial platforms, excluding any negative experiences as they can occur in hospitality situations. Interesting concept though !

The Case Against Sharing

The Case Against Sharing | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
On access, scarcity, and trust
BeerBergman's insight:

L'histoire de l'économie de partage se dessine lentement, mais sûrement. Je suis toujours hôte et voyageur AirBnB (et j'écris en résidant dans un gîte loué via cette plateforme), mais les plateformes de partage posent de réelles questions sur la protection, le salariat et l'entrepreneuriat. A lire. "What is sharing anyway?" ("Qu'est-ce que le partage ?")

***

"But our society is not returning to a past utopia of collective social confidence and equality because this utopia never existed. The sharing economy doesn’t build trust — it trades on cultural homogeneity and established social networks both online and in real life. Where it builds new connections, it often replicates old patterns of privileged access for some, and denial for others.

***

The sharing economy has painfully noble goals. But a society and an economics that truly values civic engagement, the commons, and trust between people is one that invests in the protection of those people so they can really prosper, even when something goes wrong."
