As a follow up to my previous post The 3 Rs of a Share Economy platform some people asked for more info about the Share Economy. There are many terms used to describe the concept and a confluence of several trends. Some of them, in particular reputation capital, have significant and wider importance.
For people who want to know more, I strongly recommend the two TED talks below by Rachel Botsman. The first, from 2010, is a good overview of collaborative consumption.
The second, from last year, explains the concept of reputation capital and building trust amongst strangers.
