Airbnb doesn't sell you a room to stay, that is what the host does. Airbnb sells you trust which is achieved through a platform of social commenting where no-one is anonymous. Everyone is known, named and identified. Anonymity verses privacy is a massive debate of our time which online platforms are tackling in new ways. I DON't think we should launch a platform called '' to solve the problem set by this brief as only the aggrieved would sign up. Rather I would prefer to see open-source the code used by Airbnb and Hailo that make staying with hosts or taking cabs safer so that every platform can include high-end systems that protect their users which are all of us.

I came across this video below shared on social media which is a man wearing yoga pants who chases down any guy who stares at his butt. The video seeks to embarrass most of the men in the video. I thought of this challenge immediately asking what would happen if they were more pranks performed daily that aimed to create a behavioral change.

The Vice interview on the Manitoba colony in Bolivia shows pure evil. Hundreds of women woke with blood stained sheets and no memory of any act. At first, they thought it was an act of god that lasted four years. Later, several men were caught using a cow sedative anesthetic spray to drug the apartments of their small town, raping 130 women and children. The women of the Manitoba colony aren't meant to speak publically and it is incredibly easy for people to get way with things with little or no deterrant in place.

I am presuming the mobile web is getting more and more cheaper becoming accessible to all. I think the internet is unfortunately necessary for this idea to work efficiently. Will have to do other ideas for low income communities without access to internet.
