A New Way To Stay

Published on June 13, 2013 by in Uncategorized

The recent recession has been particularly hard on leisure industries.  As Americans have pinched pennies and managed tight budgets, summer vacations have come to feel, for many, like distant memories.  However, one company has found a way to use the recession to its advantage—and is experiencing outrageous growth by making travel more affordable.

What began with a couple of guys renting out overnight accommodations on airbeds in their San Francisco living room has evolved into a multimillion-dollar industry with the potential for changing the way we think about vacationing.  When the Industrial Design Conference hit San Francisco in 2007, it was difficult to find a hotel room in the saturated market.  Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia were struggling to pay the rent on their loft, and decided to rent out their living room to conference attendees, and along with homemade breakfasts.  With that AirBed & Breakfast was born.

Creative Mornings

Published on June 6, 2013 by in Uncategorized

Lately, I’ve developed something of an obsession.  Anyone who has found themselves stuck in a tailspin, watching an entire season of a television show in one sitting might be able to relate. You’ll understand, if you know what it’s like to compulsively push “play” as soon as one episode ends—that twinge of shame and guilt that comes with the conscious decision to sit there a little longer and watch another episode.  (Graciously, Netflix has omitted that decision in recent months—giving you about thirteen seconds, as the closing credits roll, to get your life in order before auto-playing the next episode.)

Which Brands Will Survive?

Published on May 30, 2013 by in Uncategorized

Every year, the website 247WallSt.com makes a few waves when it releases its list of ten brands that will disappear next year.  Nearly always, those brands are juggernauts of business that have seen better days—instantly-familiar brands which have fallen on hard times.  Sometimes 24/7 Wall St. is right, and the companies fold.  Sometimes, though, the death knell is premature, and the crippled companies persist, either by restructuring or by being snatched up by some pie-eyed optimist, intent on taking the company in a new direction.

Bang With Friends

Published on May 23, 2013 by in Uncategorized

A controversial new app is ruffling some feathers because of the behavior it facilitates, but its most fundamental premise might inspire a new breed of apps that could genuinely enrich our lives.

Late last week, a relatively popular new app called Bang With Friends was booted from the Apple App Store.  While an official explanation has not yet been issued—well, some speculate it may have been on moral grounds.  Bang With Friends is a fairly new app that allows you to discreetly decide which of your Facebook friends you’d like to share a casual sexual encounter with.  If a friend that you choose is also using the app, and also chooses you, you’re both alerted via e-mail and can go about arranging the encounter.  In short, it’s a “friends with benefits” app that sidesteps any potential rejection.
