Show #87 Lisa Gansky, The Mesh

This week Bob and Pat talk with Lisa Gansky, serial startup founder and author of The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing.

There’s a trend, perhaps even a movement, decoupling access to services and products from ownership, and we talk with Lisa about the startup opportunities that the Mesh economic model makes possible.

Software is now firmly established as a service – what happens when physical objects plus cloud infrastructure equals a better experience at a lower cost than actually owning everything we sometimes need?

Two podcast notes: we’re moving this site to WPEngine this coming week, and there will be no show November 8th since I will be keynoting Deploy 2010.
