Of course, this trend has been going for the last few years. But it helps when thoughtleaders start addressing them …

The fact that Le Web London made the sharing economy it’s topic this year, proves that there’s something happening. The fact that industry analist Jeremiah Owyang makes the collaborative economy his central theme this year, shows this is more than a fad. Something’s happening, something’s changing. We’re cutting out the middleman where possible, we’re helping each other out instead of looking at institutions.  Have a look at a recent presentation of Jeremiah Owyang, inspiring stuff. Where else can we do things together? Drop a note in the comments!
