Time Magazine article w/Airbnb is here – photos!

logo-thumbnail-blue About Airbnb

Just picked up copies of Time Magazine (April 20, 2009), and the article looks great! Woot! We’ve seen a noticeable uptick in sign-ups, hostings, and reservations both on our site, and Twitter. Very cool. Thanks everyone for your emails. We’re glad to get the word out about Airbnb to millions of Time readers around the world. And a huge thanks to Josh for writing a stellar article, and Tim for a memorable photo shoot. The 4-page article is a great read, incorporating insight from esteemed Y-Combinator founder Paul Graham, who reminds us all to “listen to our users”. (We’re listening – email us at support (at) airbnb.com). The paper copy is available at newsstands internationally through the week, and the online text is available here. The paper version has more content (and photos), and is worth picking up.

    Being a host with AirBnB since February has really helped me make my check out to Uncle Sam today! I work for myself and have not received a refund in quite some time. I always owe. The recession had me a bit worried and supplementing my income with hosting quells those worries. all the best to airbed and continued success. I’d like to see AirBnd compete more with hotels and not just in price points but in experience.
