Platforms 20.45 — A weekly digest

Updated: Nov 9

👋 A weekly round-up of what was written or said at the intersection of #platforms, #marketplaces and #business, and stood out.


An Important Announcement from Airbnb:

You have turned hosting into so much more than a way to rent out your extra space. You’ve turned hosting into an art and a science, focusing on the small personal touches that make your guests feel special. You care for guests like family members visiting, and the connection you have with them lasts long after they leave.
