Case in point of a sharing economy not working out as well in practice as it does in theory. Ownership means having skin in the game.

btw from a discussion elsewhere, a user says the issue is you use the bike, ride it, and lock it, and are then discharged of responsibility, but the bike is just sitting wherever you parked it and there doesn't seem to be a system for collecting the bikes again or directing a future user to the bike location, so they end up as strays and end up in a heap because they're in the way.

Crowdsourcing context https://www.shakespearesworld.org/#!/ "Shakespeare’s World is a collaboration between the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., Zooniverse.org at Oxford University, and the Oxford English Dictionary of Oxford University Press. In this project we’re inviting you to transcribe manuscripts created by thousands of men and women in and around Shakespeare’s lifetime, 1564–1616.

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of his death, and it’s an opportune time to broaden our understanding of the period in which he and his contemporaries lived. What was it like to live, work, or raise a family in early modern England? What did people eat, what did they wear, and what issues worried them? What were the hot topics of gossip? What did they do for fun? What did they read and how did they travel? Find out all of this and more by transcribing letters and ‘receipt’ (recipe) books in the first phase of the project. Later we'll add miscellanies, family papers, legal and literary documents. Whatever your interest, there is something here for you!

As you transcribe you may come across words and word variants that have not yet been recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary. New word and variant candidates are detected while you transcribe. The list of possible candidates will be assessed by the OED team to update the dictionary and ultimately enrich this important record of the English language."
Transcribe handwritten documents by Shakespeare's contemporaries and help us understand his life and times. Along the way you'll find words that have yet to be recorded in the authoritative Oxford English Dictionary, and which will eventually be added to this important resource.

But, say you're going out to dinner with Oprah with a fortune in the neighborhood of $3 billion (just 800 mil behind the Donald) ? Would the app automatically assume that she is poorer than her dining companion based solely on her race and gender?

In truth it's not so much an anti-smoking campaign so much as it is an ad for the smoke cessation products the company that sponsored the billboard sells. But it's still an interesting concept http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/13/media/coughing-billboard-smoking/index.html
When smokers walk by a certain billboard in Stockholm, something strange happens: The billboard coughs at them.

Excellent service at a reasonable price. At other places you sometimes feel that you're halfway to the cost of a new bike when you need something fixed. So refreshing to find an option like this.
