Maybe my new home? This concept seems really cool! I have never heard the term "collisions" for bumping into people!

 

 

Hsieh said the Airstream park is partially inspired by the Burning Man festival, but he noted, “It’s probably more accurate to describe it as an urban camping experience with everyone sharing the world’s largest living room (which has a community kitchen and campfires).”

 

Hsieh, who has temporarily moved out of his residence at The Ogden in downtown to live with friends at Airstream village, is known for his penchant of trying to create conditions to foster “collisions” between people so that they connect.

So, he said the Airstream living experiment is giving him the chance to bump into more people than ever before.

“Downtown is great because of all the collisions that happen when you’re out and about,” Hsieh said.

“The Airstream park living experiment we’ve been doing has resulted in even more collisions even when not out and about,” he said.

The Zappos CEO has a reported net worth of $840 million. But Hsieh chooses to live in a Las Vegas trailer park he owns, according to a recent profile in The New York Times.                                                                                                                                                                                   http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/a-retail-ceo-worth-dollar840-million-lives-in-a-las-vegas-trailer-park/ar-AAdaTtw?ocid=mailsignout

Burning Man Las Vegas Style....

Does what happens in Airstream Village, stay in Airstream Village?

With Airstreams, they still stayed upscale.....
