"It's amazing to see how we are able to connect people" says Daan, the founder of Peerby. Watch this little summary of the competition and Daan being super happy about winning.. the first price!
Woohoo, almost 50 (!) people from Orange County, USA joined Peerby! That means we won't be seeing only requests for iceskates, hats and gloves but also bathing towels, parasols and inflatable beds.
Sunny greetings to Orange County!
Peerby member Rosa on BBC: "I needed to make coffee for 200 people at a neighbourhood party, well that's a lot! As I did not want to rent coffee machines, I put a request on Peerby and got 5 replies from my neighbors!"
Rosa and Peerby founder Daan are on the BBC World News & BBC News today!

In our last post we asked if you know how long a powerdrill is used in its lifetime. Thanks for your comments. The right answer is.... 12 to 13 minutes!
A lot of extra time to drill some other holes in the wall! So Patty is lending her powerdrill out to her neigbours. You too?
After some very exciting weeks, Daan is back in Amsterdam! A good time to sit down and write a blog about how it all started and why every city should be a sharing city.
