Markets in everything: pee pee edition

Posted in Uncategorized by Navin Kumar on September 8, 2011

Cloo (community+loo) is an app that is basically a “market creator”: some people (sellers) register to rent out their bathrooms while others (buyers) can look them up if they need to pee.

An interesting market creating aspect of the app is that it displays any connection you may share with the person (using “social media” data – which I assume means facebook) which possibly reduces the trepidation about using a stranger’s bathroom or even walking into the house of a potential serial killer.
