Ideas for Cities: Share Physical Things

December 16, 2009
Share Physical Things
Cities could create a technology platform that enables subscribers to share physical things like cars (Zipcar), bikes, homes swaps for vacations right within the city, clothes, accessories (Bag Borrow Steal), tools, wifi, gathering places, kitchens for people to come cook and eat together, food pantries from local gardens, and more.

This is part 35 of a continuing brainstorm on the future of cities, inaugurated at the CEOs for Cities Velocity conference in September, 2009. We’ll post a new idea each day until we run out, at which point we’re counting on you to come up with something smart. Do you have a good idea for improving your city? Add it in the comments below, or tweet it to @GOOD with hashtag #cityideas—we’ll publish the best ones. Tomorrow's idea: Accessible, Easy, Ample, and Multi-use Public Transportation.
