AirBNB backed up by Ashton Kutcher
AirBNB.com is community market place where you can rent houses or rooms from regular citizens. Say, you want to go to New York city for a weekend, you can find apartments, rooms and houses on AirBNB - from people who are willing to rent their place out.
It's kind of a cross between couchsurfing.org - which is for backpackers and adventurers -and traditional hotel sites. You can either become a host and rent out your place, or be a traveler - and stay in a city apartment, country lodge, or on a boat. AirBNB already has listings in more than 8000 cities and 166 countries. The start-up seems to be very promising, especially since it's strategic advisor will be no-other than Ashton Kutcher!
