You can now use Airbnb to rent apartments, homes, cabins, tree houses, boats, parking spaces, castles, sublets… and even a country (for the bargain sum of $70,000 per night, you can rent out the country of Liechtenstein like rapper Snoop Dog). This is a guest post by Jeff Jordan, General Partner of Andreessen Horowitz. Talk about a business with humble roots. Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia met at the Rhode Island School of Design and became roommates in San Francisco in 2007.
