Oct. 26, 2010 Future Salon New Sharing Economy

On October 26, 2010 in Palo Alto at SAP, the Bay Area Future Salon presented “The New Sharing Economy.” Neal Gorenflo of Shareable Magazine moderated panelists Punsri Abeywickrema of Rentalic, Rachel Botsman of “What’s Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption“, Casey Fenton of Couchsurfing, Jessica Scorpio Co-Founder of Getaround and  John Zimmer of Zimride. They talked about new ways to connect people to stuff by moving from an ownership to an access economy.

As Mark Finnern said “This is the change we need. With a peer-based, sharing economy comes cost savings, stronger communities, environmental conservation, broader access to resources, and higher quality products made for sharing. Sharing addresses many problems at once – an appropriate solution for an era of interconnected crises.”
