Airbnb and the Internet Revolution

They aren’t as bad as Uber in their flaunting of the law …

… but the longer they do it

  • the less taxes arrive to support a city/county/state
  • the more drain on those same services
  • the less rooms and properties there are for people who just want to live
  • the more temptation for the owners who are sharing their space - not to share their income with the IRS

Airbnb gets less press than Uber, but in some respects its even more radical: understanding how it works leads one to question many of the premises of modern society from hotels to regulations. It’s an important marker in the Internet Revolution.
