Joe Gebbia Quotes
Scheduled shipping is one of many inventions that has made New York a global capital of innovation and creativity - from Willis Carrier's invention of air conditioning in Buffalo and George Eastman's breakthrough film technology in Rochester to the rise of hip-hop in the South Bronx and the world's first cell phone call in Midtown Manhattan.
Digital communication is completely different from in-person, face-to-face conversations. One will give you surface insights, and the other really gives you depth.
Design helps shape our everyday interactions through products, furniture, objects, or experiences.
What I've realized is that the joy of meeting and greeting people from all around the world is universal.
Airbnb has grown thanks to our hosts creating memorable experiences and inspiring their guests to be hosts in their hometowns.
Airbnb has proven that hospitality, generosity, and the simple act of trust between strangers can go a long way.
Dog-fooding is using your own products so that you understand from inside out what it is you're providing the customers. It's another way to gain insights and to gain intelligence. You use it yourself; you eat your own dog food. Every time we do that, we discover something that we can improve.
Technology moves so quickly; you can't get comfortable with the business you have today because technology will progress.
We didn't invent anything new. Hospitality has been around forever.
In the post-war United States, you had this race to the suburbs. Cities shrank, the suburbs got bigger - and the notion of community changed drastically. You went from all being very close together to all being spaced apart and slightly suspicious of one another.
People assume that the smarter your home, the better your life, but in reality, technology so often gets in the way of leading a good life.
Airbnb was born out of necessarity. Our rent went up. It was born out of a problem.
In art school, you learn that design is much more than the look and feel of something - it's the whole experience.
By helping New Yorkers turn their greatest expense - their home - into an asset, Airbnb is a vehicle that artists, entrepreneurs, and innovators can use to earn extra money to pursue their passion.
We hire people who are smarter than us.
I've experienced firsthand the disconnect between furniture, their environments, and the way people work.
I often stay in Tokyo's Daikanyama neighbourhood. You can go for a peaceful morning run along the Meguro river, and it is particularly incredible during cherry blossom season.
Ultimately, the power of the Airbnb platform is that it motivates guests to blend into communities, belong anywhere, and live like locals.
Cities are a melting pot for different ideas, and diversity brings a high-energy rhythm that I don't think we'd know was gone until it was too late.
From natural disasters to the refugee crises, the impact we can have as individuals might seem limited. But as many of our hosts know, sharing your home for even a few nights can make a tremendous difference in someone's life.
Design can overcome our most deeply rooted stranger-danger bias.
The sharing economy is out of the bag - and it's not going to go back in.
Sympathy relies on a common experience. If you're clumsy, you might have sympathy for others who tend to bump into things. Empathy, on the other hand, is the ability to understand another person's feelings even if you've never experienced them yourself.
To be truly empathetic, we have to acknowledge that we're all human, we're all flawed, and that life can be difficult.
The fear of mistakes is the fast track to irrelevance.
Creating the future means having a global vision and an extreme focus on the approachability of what we're creating.
