The Latest Billion Dollar Startup

By -

Well, the mania continues. But it's different this time, right?

The latest news is that a firm called airbnb (snappy name, huh?) got funding at a billion dollar valuation. The business basically connects people who want to rent out rooms in their house for the night to people who would like to rent them. It's sort of like finding a hotel, only cheaper and creepier.

Well, that's the billion dollar idea. I guess you'll want to keep your eye out for the IPO.
