How I’ve managed to miss this for so long, I don’t know. I could have just typed the words in the URL bar and there it would have been. www.collaborativeconsumption.com it’s a brilliant website and last week I’ve had a lot of fun with it. It has links to a whole host of sharing economy services. Some familiar, some less so. It has resources for visitors to read up on the subject and there are many suggestions of ways to get involved locally or globally.
But the most valuable thing about the website is that it offers the opportunity to connect to the people who started this thing. I spent quite a long time yesterday adding interesting folk to my twitter feed. This is the real way of learning about a new phenomenon: Get to know the people who are driving these initiatives, what are they are tweeting about is what they are doing and that is bound to be exciting.
Take a look, have a click around. It’ll be worth it.
