Looking back at my 2016: publications and media

Here is a reasonably complete collection of things written by me, interviews of me, book reviews about my book, and articles to which I contributed through interviews or quotes or data sets for the year 2016. It’s been a busy year, and rewarding in many ways.


My second book What’s Yours is Mine: Against the Sharing Economy was published by OR Books in November 2015, but I am including the book and related articles here, making it a “long 2016”.

  • US and UK edition (link), OR Books, November 2015
  • Canadian edition (link), Between the Lines Press, February 2016
  • German edition (Deins ist Meins): Verlag Antje Kunstmann
  • Spanish edition: Lo tuyo es mío, Taurus, November 2016
  • Simplified Chinese edition: (Ginkgo Book Co.)
  • French language edition (France and Québec): Ce Qui est à Toi est à Moi, translated by Hélène Rioux, Lux Editeur

Quoted, and Airbnb data

Report: How Airbnb hid the facts in New York City

Together with Murray Cox of Inside Airbnb,  I produced a report on Airbnb’s removal of 1500 listings in New York, just in time to make its public release of data look good.

  1. Hello Whimsley,

    Happy New Year, and Boxing Day, and so forth 😉

    Here is something that I find deeply puzzling: I know plenty of people among the alt-right who object strongly to the sharing economy. (No, I am not referring to that Frederich Hayek guy on Twitter!) These people want tariffs, had parents who were members of non-government unions, and worry about cities like San Francisco (in concert with Uber and Lyft and Airbnb) exploiting people who can’t get, or aren’t interested in jobs in high-tech. They worry about affordable housing for everyone, not just the techno elite. They ridicule techno-utopian libertarian fantasies. They work in technology or the law, in so-called Rust Belt communities. You wouldn’t like their strong ethno-nationalist support for white people and Christianity. I have found them to be supportive of any religion that involves genuine belief (as long as there is no proselytizing). They know that I am Jewish and female, but are supportive of my goals and are attentive and polite when I express my opinions.

    So, this is what I wonder, Tom Slee: Why can’t these modern day alt-right people (who in most ways, could be described as authoritarian left) ally with individuals like yourself, to accomplish goals that universally benefit silenced or ignored voices? No, “voices” is the language of social justice. A better description is impoverished, ignored and exploited citizens of our nations of Canada and the United States.

    In other words, forget about so-called intersectionality and identity politics. Can’t we be allies with those whose ideology is not identical to our own, but has Venn intersections in common?
