That airbnb is SO hot right now…

In which I reveal my discovery that tacking ANYTHING on the end of “The Airbnb of —-” auto-generates awesome, disruptive, multibillion startup ideas

You can’t listen to any business speech these days without being repeatedly pointed towards airbnb as the ultimate example… often in fact the only example… of just about any point the speaker wishes to make, from higher-level positives like industry disruption, market disintermediation, and democratization of commerce, all the way down to granular best practices of web design and user experience.

You can combine airbnb with any business model to generate awesome new business ideas.

Basically anything that starts with “The airbnb of ——” will be an awesome, self-explanatory, and self-explanatorily awesome business idea.
