As the world became more connected through the Internet in the 1990′s, many disruptive uses of this connectivity were tried and in some cases have grown into wildly successful businesses. One aspect of connectivity is the way it opens up interaction at different levels, that’s one of the driving factors in the growth of the social web, for example

Rachel Botsman, author and social innovator, talks about her latest book groundbreaking, original book that explores the rise of “Collaborative Consumption” — a cultural and economic force transforming business, consumerism, and the way we live.
The recent changes in our economic landscape have only exposed and intensified a phenomenon: an explosion in sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting, and swapping. From enormous marketplaces such as eBay and Craigslist, to emerging sectors such as peer-to-peer lending (Zopa), ‘swap trading’ (Swaptree) and car sharing (Zipcar), Collaborative Consumption is disrupting outdated modes of business and reinventing not only what we consume but how we consume.
While ranging enormously in scale and purpose, these companies and organizations are redefining how goods and services are exchanged, valued, and created — in areas as diverse as finance and travel, agriculture and technology, education and retail. Traveling among global entrepreneurs and revolutionaries, and exploring rising ventures as well as established companies adapting to these opportunities, the authors outline in bold and imaginative ways how Collaborative Consumption may very well change the world.
uncluttered white spaces, in collaboration with Theme Media has created our first mini-feature documentary in a series covering global thought leaders, change agents and inspiring humans.

The Emerging Collaboration Economy
Hub Culture founder Stan Stalnaker shares his thoughts in a Q&A with Rachel Botsman on sharing, the power of the commons, and peer-to-peer transaction.
Rachel Botsman is co-authoring a book with Roo Rogers entitled What’s Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption (being published by Harper Collins in 2010).
The book is about how people are collaborating together through organized sharing, bartering, trading, renting, swapping and collectives to get the same pleasures of ownership with reduced personal cost and burden — and lower environmental impact.
RB: We look at how look how social networks and web technologies are giving new relevance to pre-industrial behaviors such as bartering, swapping, trading, social lending etc. that require marketplace structures. Essentially how we are going back to ‘human to human transactions’ between producer and consumer, seller and buyer, borrower and lender, neighbor to neighbor etc. What are your thoughts on this? What are your favorite examples of this in action?
