The Battle Is For The Customer Interface

Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening. Since the Industrial Revolution, the world has developed complex supply chains, from designers to manufacturers, from distributors to importers, wholesalers and retailers, it’s what allowed billions of products to be made, shipped, bought and enjoyed in all corners of the world. How Web Sharing Sites Can Save The Planet. Using the web to help people share “stuff” has become a hot commodity as of late.

How Web Sharing Sites Can Save The Planet

Sites like peer-to-peer apartment rental Airbnbhave been generating some serious attention over the past few weeks, a book on the subject of web-based collaborative consumption comes out next week, and car sharing services from Zimrideto Zipcar have been expanding rapidly. As co-author of the upcoming book Rachel Botsman puts it in an interview in this September’s Wired Magazine issue, “We’re facing a revolution in the way we think of ownership,” and it’s being driven by the Internet. But I think there’s another often overlooked aspect at the heart of this cultural shift: how to manage constrained resources sustainably in the face of massive population growth centered around cities.

There will be an estimated 9 billion people on the planet in 2050 — more than 2 billion than there are today — and largely that population growth will happen in cities.

It’s been more than a decade since the founding of Netflix and Zipcar, and by now both are well-established businesses.

Beyond Zipcar: Collaborative Consumption

They’re leading examples of an economy and culture model we call collaborative consumption—systems of organized sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting, and swapping. Collaborative consumption gives people the benefits of ownership with reduced personal burden and cost and also lower environmental impact—and it’s proving to be a compelling alternative to traditional forms of buying and ownership. Click here for a larger image of the graphic. Why Do People Take Part in Collaborative Consumption? The success of any collaborative consumption (CC) platform or business depends on reaching a critical mass, at which point users can easily find the goods, food, or skills which they seek.

Why Do People Take Part in Collaborative Consumption?

To understand the potential for platforms to reach this critical mass, shareNL interviewed twenty users of Dutch collaborative consumption services: on-demand stuff sharing platform Peerby, meal-sharing marketplace Shareyourmeal, and online skill marketplace Konnektid. From there, we analyzed motives and aggregated them into variables to explain why people are taking part in collaborative consumption. Current users predominantly have the characteristics of innovators and early adopters.

They got to know about the platforms through networks and social media and started using them mainly out of practical need. In addition, a diverse set of social, environmental and financial motives for using these platforms was found. Why We Cooperate.

Nail technicians struggle to defend their independence; salon owners try to create a cohesive workplace. Our focus group discussion revealed that, although the IRS has very strict guidelines defining exactly what a salon owner is and isn’t allowed to do, salons do not follow these guidelines with any consistency. The goal of our focus group was not to determine whether laws are being broken, but to discover how salon professionals make booth rental work. Making Booth Rental Work - Business - NAILS Magazine.

Share space shaking up service office market. A quiet revolution is taking place in the Australian office market – one that is turning the serviced office concept on its head. A core market for this sector is business start-ups, who turn to serviced offices for their first premises, renting a suite with a professional sounding address and receptionist. But what these budding entrepreneurs too often find are pokey suites in bland environments offering little interaction with other people.

In start-up rich sectors like digital media, marketing agencies and visual arts, that simply won’t do. Instead, they are turning to growing number of shared workspaces which offer open plan environments designed to create a friendly atmosphere and stimulate cross business collaboration. Shared office space a growing trend. Developer is taking the business of co-working, mostly the domain of entrepreneurs and freelance workers, to the blue-chip end of town with the redevelopment of the Sydney building at 1 O’Connell Street. The Porter, as the 700-square-metre ground floor space is called, will give tenants and non-tenant members access to a range of flexible spaces ­tailored to different themes and designed for meetings, casual working and collaborating.

In an already competitive market for tenants – made more intense in ­Sydney, where the Barangaroo ­development will add 30,0000 square metres to the city’s stock of office space – strategies to attract and keep tenants are crucial. The Porter is due to open later this month and for the first time creates a shared working space for top-tier ­corporate tenants, rather than the individuals and micro-businesses that have powered the growth of co-working space ­pioneers such as Hub Australia.

Introduction to Behavior-Based Design. In general, I think that a product is only as good as its ability to co-opt behavior. Techcrunch is littered with the stale remains of gorgeous products that were executed to perfection, but failed to get any true user adoption. They failed to fit into, or change, the behavior patterns of their users. This point is obvious. The question now becomes: Why did they fail to fit into, or change, the behavior patterns of their users? Are we heading towards a bubble in shared office space?

Most people work in a cubicle. The lucky ones have an office with a window and a door that can be shut. But a new kind of office is popping up in neighborhoods from Newton to Chelsea to Boston’s Leather District: communal spaces where you can rent a desk or three on a month-to-month basis, and mingle with other businesspeople around the kitchen’s beer tap at the end of the day. (Unlimited brewskis — or cups of coffee — are included in the rent.)
