AirBnB is opening its door to the community. From their blog post:
Local residents and organizations will be able to use our office space for free during evenings and weekends by booking this classroom for community meetings and events
We will expand our mentorship efforts and invite local students to learn from our employees and experts who teach classes in our office on a regular basis through Tech Talks, Design Talks and Skill Exchange programming.
Together with SPUR, we will co-host a monthly public forum on the impacts of technology and innovation in San Francisco.
Our growing library of books on urbanism, design, hospitality, sustainability, and computer engineering will be curated by former Editor in Chief of Dwell Magazine and New York Times columnist Allison Arieff, and will be accessible to the public on a weekly basis during Airbnb Library Open Hours.
Why aren’t you opening your doors?
This isn’t rocket science. Play the long game.
