Hey sharing folks, Shareable is hosting the Sharing Cities Map Jam October 12th through the 26th. This is the kickoff action of our just announced Sharing Cities Network.
We want to collaborate with you to map all the sharing goodness in as many cities as possible around the world. You know all that good stuff we've been writing about for the last four years, like coworking, hackerspaces, public parks, lending libraries, carsharing, bikesharing, and more (I could go on)? Yeah, it's time to map it where you live and set the stage to grow sharing in your city.
