The Future of Money project just released the below infographic as a companion to their short film, which you can see here. I'm not sure how well the Venn diagram schema works here.

Neal Gorenflo is the executive director and co-founder of Shareable, an award-winning news, action, connection hub for the sharing transformation. An epiphany in 2004 inspired Neal to leave the corporate world to help people share through startups, publishing, grassroots organizing, and a circle of friends committed to the common good. During this career shift, Neal worked with startups including peer-to-peer asset sharing platform Moogul.com, an online DVD exchange, a spinout of Cisco’s corporate asset sharing platform, and white label asset sharing platform Divvy.com. To build community in the space, he co-organized The Abundance League monthly salons in San Francisco between 2005 and 2010. Through his exploration of sharing, Neal met those who would co-found Shareable with him. Subsequently, Neal has become knowledgeable about sharing through 10 years of entrepreneurship, public communication, and as an avid practitioner. He has consulted with Institute for the Future, Stanford University, Lowe's Home Improvement, and numerous startups. His expertise has been featured by The Today Show, NBC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Wired, Fast Company, Christian Science Monitor, and Sunset Magazine. He is a sought after speaker with appearances at SXSW, Sustainable Brands, and SOCAP. His writing is featured in YES! Magazine, 7x7 Magazine, The Urbanist, and the anthologies The Wealth of the Commons, Open Design Now, and Enabling City. He is co-editor of the books Share or Die, Policies for Shareable Cities, and Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons. In addition to his work at Shareable, Neal is an adviser to OuiShare, Mayor Park of Seoul, South Korea and is a former Innovation Fellow for Mayor Lee of San Francisco. Neal earned a masters with distinction from Georgetown University's Communication, Culture & Technology program and B.As in American Studies and English Literature with distinction for George Mason University.
