Airbnb has become so prevalent in Great Britain that some parts of the country now have one listing for every four properties, prompting concern that the rapid expansion in short-term lets is “out of control” and depriving communities of much-needed homes.

How Tech Firms Like Uber Hide Behind the ‘Platform Defense’ | WIRED
And now we learn that Uber isn’t a hired car company, but a platform. Do the drivers live in poverty? Are they overworked? An employer is invested in the welfare of its workers and can be held to account by unions and government regulations. But a platform? That’s another word for the marketplace, and the marketplace doesn’t believe in tears.

There is a reason that some people call Silicon Valley a font of cruelty. The platform defense seems like an easy justification for turning your eyes away from social destruction. But even more insidious is the trashing of basic, time-tested standards for relationships, whether between news tellers or storytellers and their audience, between hosts and their guests, between employers and their employees.

Inside Airbnb's 'Guerrilla War' Against Local Governments | WIRED
Airbnb maintains that, in most cases, it’s not responsible for collecting occupancy taxes required of hotels and other lodgings or for ensuring the rooms and homes listed on its sites comply with zoning or health regulations. The company says it follows local and state laws but considers itself a “platform,” serving merely to connect hosts and visitors, rather than a lodging provider—more akin to Facebook than Marriott.

The onus is on hosts, Airbnb argues, to collect and pay any relevant taxes and to comply with other regulations. In practice, though, few actually do—at least not without considerable effort by local authorities—according to interviews with more than a dozen local government officials and advisers.

Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, and the on-demand economy is a bubble—and it’s about to burst — Quartz
But just because massive companies like Airbnb are finding success in the travel sector doesn’t mean that on-demand delivery of goods and services in other areas has been solved. Other than ride sharing, lodging, and food delivery, mass-market adoption for on-demand uses is shaky at best. (In fact, we’re not even sure if the on-demand economy is technically legal.) Instead, venture capital is fueling the space and essentially subsidizing services. But VC money does not make your company invincible, and you can only finance growth through venture money for so long—even Uber and Lyft are burning through a ton of cash.

Uber and Airbnb are not the future of capitalism - Vox
But this vision of the future hasn’t aged well. Uber and Airbnb have obviously enjoyed tremendous growth. Beyond that, it depends on how you define the term. Some people count companies like Prosper, LendingClub, WeWork, Etsy, and Zipcar as part of the sharing economy. Others don’t. What’s clear is that outside of the car business, the sharing economy isn’t rendering ownership obsolete. Consumerism isn’t in decline, and capitalism isn’t being transformed.

Even the three best-known “sharing economy” companies have found there are limits to peer-to-peer sharing. Asking early adopters to share is a great way to bootstrap a new online business. But beyond a certain point, continued growth often requires professionalization.

The Tech Bubble Didn’t Burst This Year. Just Wait - Bloomberg
Startups’ struggles to grow and woo venture capitalists are only half the story, though, because the VCs themselves are more flush than ever. With global interest rates low, Silicon Valley remains a safe-looking diversification strategy for investors, especially wealthy Middle Easterners and Russians with little regard for rates of return. These investors have poured money into new funds raised by the likes of Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. (Bloomberg LP, which owns Bloomberg Businessweek, is an investor in Andreessen Horowitz.)

Don’t blame Airbnb for ruining your secret getaway | Fusion
Overall, the increase in travel is a good thing, as is the way in which it is increasingly expanding from a limited menu of clunky old institutions like mega-resorts and flea-bag motels. But as the demand for unique and memorable experiences continues to rise, the kind of locations which tend to form the backdrop to such experiences are only going to see more out-of-towners passing through for a few days. Rents and home prices in those places are going to rise, and people who used to be able to afford to live there will increasingly be priced out.

Welcome to AirSpace | The Verge
"I think the demographic started to change," Short says. In 2013, Airbnb felt like a true social experiment, "pioneering new territory, attracting people who were open-minded, easy-going, don’t worry if there’s a fleck on the mirror in the bathroom." By 2016, she explains, it "became the vanilla tourist who wanted the Super 8 motel experience. I don’t like these travelers as much as the earlier days."

Airbnb and house-sharing firms reduced New York housing stock by 10% – study | US news | The Guardian
Short-term rental companies like Airbnb are flooding New York City’s housing market, reducing available housing stock citywide by 10%, a new study has revealed.

More than 55% of rooms or apartments listed on Airbnb in New York are illegal, according to the report, which is the result of research commissioned by two affordable housing advocacy groups: Housing Conservation Coordinators and MFY Legal Services.

Secrets of the Sharing Economy - Bloomberg View
It goes by many names: the “sharing economy,” the “gig economy,” the “on-demand economy." Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who has been studying the phenomenon for several years, favors “crowd-based capitalism.” But he compromised for the book he’s just written, titling it “The Sharing Economy: The End of Employment and the Rise of Crowd-Based Capitalism.”

In the book, Sundararajan argues that online platforms that make it easy for individuals to sell products and services to others are ushering in a new kind of capitalism. I interviewed him over lunch early this month. What follows is an edited and much-abridged account of our conversation.

Insurance Startups — Market Ecosystem Map — Greylock Perspectives
If you are building a startup in the insurance space, a key question you should ask is:
Are you innovating on the sales channel of insurance or are you innovating on the product level (aka. trying to create a next-gen carrier)?
Both are viable but depending on your end goal, you will have very different considerations on how you enter and compete in the market.

Airbnb’s worst problems are confirmed by its own data | The Verge
But a review of the data by The Verge found that Airbnb's numbers, covering November of 2014 through November 1st of 2015, largely confirmed the attorney general's accusations. A small number of hosts renting out multiple listings took home a disproportionate amount of the total revenue. And while roughly 71 percent of hosts rented out their home for three months or less, there were still thousands of "whole units," meaning an entire house or apartment, which were rented for six months or more during the last year.

For example the number of hosts with three or more listings on the platform accounted for less than 2 percent of the total hosts on Airbnb in New York City during the time period covered by the data. Yet that group took home 24 percent of the total whole home revenue. And that only covers people who are openly renting multiple listings. The New York Times interviewed one Airbnb host who rented five units, but only one under his own name. He estimated his annual income from the platform at $500,000, far more than the $5,110 Airbnb highlighted as the median host income.

Is Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky telling us the truth about his company? — Galleys — Medium
Brian Chesky and the rest of Airbnb’s executives and venture-capitalist backers seem to feel little responsibility for upending so many people’s lives. Their company is like a rumbling jetliner that flies low overhead, but doesn’t want to be blamed for its noise. They are either oblivious to their impact, or they have rationalized it away as the necessary collateral damage for their “sharing revolution.”
Perhaps the biggest tragedy in all this is that at the core of Airbnb is a really good idea–it has cleverly used Web- and app-based technology to bust open a global market that connects tourists with financially strapped homeowners. After interviewing some of Airbnb’s “regular-people” hosts, I’m convinced that this service legitimately does help some of them make ends meet. But by taking such a hands-off, laissez-faire attitude toward the professionalization of hosting by greedy commercial landlords and multiproperty agents, Airbnb has become its own worst enemy. As the number of victims piles up, it undermines its own “sharing and trust” ethos.

The “Uberization” of the economy is really about building a better trap for ideas - Quartz
I don’t think of Uber as a force that dis-intermediates—as we olds used to say—transportation, but one that creates value for itself, its drivers, and its users, by developing a new layer that integrates them all with maximum utility. A very talented developer once told me that the secret to a world-beating service like Dropbox was to make something very, very complicated seem devastatingly simple. To me, uberizing meant trapping a series of innovative processes—phone-enabled geo-location, payments and driver management and distribution—into an app-accessible service.

Airbnb's Brian Chesky: The Sharing Economy Isn't Really A Disruption At All | Aspen Ideas Blog
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky doesn’t view his big idea as a radical disruption — in fact, he doesn’t like the term “disruption” at all — but rather a return to how people interacted in a time before big businesses and corporations. In conversation with at the 2014 Aspen Ideas Festival, Brookings Institute Metropolitan Policy Program Fellow Jennifer Bradley, Chesky discussed his thoughts on the sharing economy and a return to how humans used to do business. “Maybe hotels disrupted what we were doing in the first place,” Chesky said. “People used to stay in homes. We didn’t invent that idea.”

The Evolution of Trust - NYTimes.com
In retrospect, I underestimated the power of a few trends that make the peer-to-peer economy possible. First, I underestimated the effects of middle-class stagnation. With wages flat and families squeezed, many people have to return to the boardinghouse model of yesteryear. They have to rent out rooms to cover their mortgage or rent. Second, I underestimated the power that liberal arts majors would have on the economy. Millions of people have finished college with a hunger for travel and local contact, but without much money. They would rather stay in spare rooms in residential neighborhoods than in homogenized hotels in commercial areas, especially if they get to have breakfast with the hosts in the morning. And the big thing I underestimated was the transformation of social trust. In primitive economies, people traded mostly with members of their village and community. Trust was face to face. Then, in the mass economy we’ve been used to, people bought from large and stable corporate brands, whose behavior was made more reliable by government regulation.

In praise of unfairness — Benedict Evans
In case it isn't obvious by now, these charts are meant to be unfair - that's the point. Unfair but relevant comparisons are the most interesting and important kinds. An unfair comparison generally means an unfair advantage, and this isn't the Olympics - unfair is good. Customers don't care if a company's advantage is unfair. Investors don't care. Unfair advantages are often the best kind. They are something that flows structurally from the reason why your business is going to change everything - they flow from a technology change you are building on or a change in market dynamics or consumer behaviour that you're riding, and that your competitors cannot address. Disruption is unfair. Mobile's disruption of PCs and the PC internet is entirely unfair - it's the unfairness of differences like the replacement cycle and subsidy model (amongst many others) that makes it possible.

Uberification of the US Service Economy - Schlaf's Notes
“On-demand mobile services” (ODMS) is a broad category so I believe it’s important to start with a definition.  My friend Semil Shah defines ODMS as “apps which aggregate consumer demand on mobile devices, but fulfill that demand through offline services.”  I’ll take it one step further:  ODMS deliver a “closed loop” experience by collapsing the value chain including discovery, order, payment, fulfillment (offline but within owned network) and confirmation. In the pre-mobile era we had to search yellow pages (or google), find a provider, call  or email that provider, wait to connect with someone, schedule a convenient time, hope the provider arrives on time, and then pay with a credit card or cash.  Thankfully, a new array of mobile services removes all of that friction we were used to experiencing.
