The Rise of Collaborative Consumption


A few weeks ago I had the chance to see Rachel Botsman talk about her new book  

A very interesting topic with guest speakers Steve Sammartion from Rentoid, Daniel Nobel from DriveMyCar Rentals and the lovely Juliette Anich from The Clothing Exchange.

She talked about the rise of practises like organized sharing, swapping, renting and gifting.  I learned a lot that night, now want to rent out everything in my house and can't wait to read the book.

Has anyone read it yet?

Haven't read the book yet but have had a lot of opportunity to read people's blog posts and reactions to the topic. Definitely want to get my hands on the book - a very interesting idea that's gaining a lot of momentum.

I have been volunteering for the Clothing Exchange for a few years now and love swapping my self. But I never realized it was becoming such a big thing! I think its defiantly a positive movement!
