Building communities (and trust) through technology.
Crowdsourcing is coming up in a big way. You can split the cost of a car ride with strangers, rent an entire vehicle by the hour, stay in stranger’s far-flung vacation homes, find responsible sitters for your pets, and even swap unwanted clothing or household goods.
Even better, not only is crowdsourcing a handy way to get things done on a budget, the focus on splitting costs (and resources) is also great for the environment.
So, what’s next on the crowdsourcing horizon? Brook Sheehan would love to add almost-expired food items to the list of swappable items that can now be found on an app.
Would you eat your neighbor’s almost-spoiled groceries? Check out what Brad has to say about Brook’s idea in this episode of Dropping Bombs.
