I’ve been dating a woman for nine months. Our chemistry is amazing and we’re compatible. But as I discovered more about her sexual history, I find that it’s precluding me from considering her seriously in the roles of wife and mother. I won’t go down the whole list, but in a nutshell, she had sex with 24 guys when she was only 14, worked as a stripper, had sex in public, and had affairs with married men.

In that meeting of the minds, one message broke through: If I want to lead a movement toward a new sharing economy, I need to show the world how I, myself, share in everyday life.

The Internet is a great tool for staying current on topics you are passionate about. But navigating it for information can also be a time vortex that sucks hours out of your life. You can lose the better part of an afternoon becoming an expert on the history of Las Vegas when you originally just meant to buy round trip tickets there for the weekend.
Seven years after co-founding StubHub, which was sold to eBay in 2007, Jeff Fluhr took a bit of a break. He noted a number of social media and technology trends before deciding on his next move.
“One thing I noticed was that what had been private conversations were becoming public conversations,” Fluhr says. “Ever since the advent of email, we’d been having these largely private, asynchronous conversations, text-based.
