Nice piece at Yahoo Finance on hot 'private space' site Airbnb, which started when co-founders Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk made rent by bringing in short-term lodgers who slept on air beds. Six years later Airbnb has more than 300,000 listings across 192 countries. Now there are several sites in the sector, including travelmob, who will be at No Vacancy on March 14. See clip and story.
