Systems Thinking, Unlocked – Airbnb Design
The system was valuable and in high demand—a wonderful problem to have—but we couldn’t keep up with the amount of requests coming in. New components were being made, but not documented. And files were being shared across teams, but without naming conventions.

Users also have a few options in terms of receiving the clothing. They can meet up in person in a public place for an exchange to cater to last-minute on-demand requests, or they can send items by mail. The company has also partnered with Pedals, which is said to be similar to Postmates, for bicycle deliveries that allow users to get deliveries in 90 minutes, “which makes us quite on-demand in that sense as well,” Prew said. It also aligns with the sustainable aspect of not having cars carrying parcels around central London, and Prew noted that “it’s quicker for a bike to cycle something than it is for a car to drive it from A to B.”

Travis Kalanick’s fund invests in logistics startup Kargo
“The idea is to ​drive efficiencies for both shippers and transporters in a way that creates greater utility of available trucks,” said Fang in a statement sent to Tech in Asia. “Shippers and transporters can strike deals transparently with the comfort of knowing that they are dealing with verified, trusted, high-quality partners.”
“This framework will go a long way in raising the earning potential of truck drivers, and ​making sure that not a single truck will ever hit the road empty again​,” he added.

‘We Know Them. We Trust Them.’ Uber and Airbnb Alumni Fuel Tech’s Next Wave.
This is going to be cool to see, but also has a certain ick-factor I can’t shake. The system is fundamentally broken, even if I’ve benefitted from it.

‘We Know Them. We Trust Them.’ Uber and Airbnb Alumni Fuel Tech’s Next Wave.
March 13, 2019 | The New York Times | By Erin Griffith.

......“There are just not that many places to find people who have seen that kind of scale,” said Ryan Graves, Uber’s former senior vice president of global operations and a member of the company’s board.

Each city that Uber, Airbnb, Lyft or Postmates expanded into created a new set of operational, regulatory and business challenges. Regulators balked. Rival business operators resisted. Neighbors protested. And people abused the platforms, over and over.

Uber managers ran each city like a mini-start-up. “If you were the general manager of San Francisco or of Atlanta, you were the C.E.O. of your region,” ..... “It led to a really entrepreneurial approach from everyone.”......

Airbnb Is Paying $400 Million For HotelTonight, Half in Pre-IPO Stock – Skift
When informed of the purchase price for HotelTonight Friday, Seth Borko, Skift senior research analyst, quipped that it could potentially be “a nice little exit” for HotelTonight.
The value of Airbnb’s stock, and what it will be once it goes public, as most observers expect, will be a key determinant of the outcome for HotelTonight since about half of the deal payment is in Airbnb stock.
“There’s room for appreciation in terms of the public valuation price,” Borko said, referring to Airbnb’s stock price if and when it goes public.

He added that Airbnb is leveraging a potentially “richly valuable stock and they are clearly putting it to work” in landing the HotelTonight deal.
