The Lounge>The Sharing Economy: how much you sharing?
scho63 07:43 PM 02-08-2019
Today I rented a car for two days on Turo. $80.40 complete total. It's the 8th time I've done it.

I've also done AirBnB, Lime Bike, Uber, Bird Scooter.

What services have you used in this new sharing economy? :-)

Most people are 20-40 using these services and I'm nearly 56.

Iíve heard a lot of cities donít want them. I guess there been a lot of accidents with pedestrians, cars, etc....
They are huge in college towns. You can't walk 5 feet In Tempe near ASU and not see 40-50 at a clip. There are about 4-5 different companies. Some are really damn fast.

I also forgot about Grubhub, Postmates and Task Rabbit. I've not used any of those.

I live in the country and don't play well with others so this "sharing" crap is just that, crap. It's just another step towards socialism only instead of the government owning the scooters it's an intermediary. If you live in town go for it but don't try to push you sense of "do-gooder" on me. As a friend once said "you can borrow everything but my truck and my wife. Truck is old, wife is young and you might throw a rod in either one".

Some of these sharing services are individuals and others are companies. You pay for the services and no one is making you pay, unlike the government. :-)

I think your analogy is way off.

Not completely, it's helping do away with private ownership of transportation in cities.

NOTE: this is not me, but that's fairly close to my setup other than my cart is a tow between instead of tow behind.

dude that is so your personal brand. I also see you with the helmet with the little rear-view mirror hanging off the side.

Hey, you seem to know how to ride a bike. What are the pros and cons?

And I assume you just get the rear-view-mirror helmet when you buy the bike, right?

I'm probably about 3.5 hours from you. If you ever get in a bind give me a shout. Grew up on a farm but never dealt with anything that big but they all have a throttle, clutch and a hydraulic lever or 2.
