Services that Rose found interesting

bike dispenser- It’s a bike rental system in the Netherlands that allows people to rent a bike for nearly $3 a day. http://www.bikedispenser.com/bikedispenser.html

smart bike DC – is also a bike rental system in DC that allowsy tou to rent a bike but their system for renting is much different. https://www.smartbikedc.com/program_information.asp

Theses systems attempted to solve the problem of bike storage and parking. The major problem with both systems that I see are firstly, they only allow one type of bike to be stored at their station and unless you have that specific type of bike you cannot use the kiosks to lock up your bike, so they are not fulfilling their original purpose to create more bike parking within a city. Secondly both require a rfid card specific to their service, which limits peoples access unless they are members of the service already.

Babysitter finding service- a service for finding a baby sitter locally where you cold check their credibility. http://www.babysitters4hire.com/

Expert knowledge swap- a way for people to offer up their area of expertise in order to gain expertise from others. Like a more personal, and reliable version of Wikipedia.
