A Threat to the Hotel Industry?
Airbnb has been shaking up the travel industry, going from a scrappy upstart listing rooms for rent to an international hospitality powerhouse. It's a leader in the so-called "sharing economy." Customers — or "hosts" as the company calls them — now use the service to list more than a half-billion offerings around the world. But as the company grows, it's also facing mounting criticism from hotel owners and government officials who say the company is breaking the law and avoiding taxes. Scott Shafer hears from Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky.

As tech companies like Twitter move into the nearby Mid-Market corridor and encroach on the neighborhood, Tenderloin Housing Clinic executive director Randy Shaw says its unique housing stock prevents gentrification. "Cool Gray City of Love" author Gary Kamiya goes further, suggesting in his book that the city and nonprofits headquartered in the Tenderloin have a stake in keeping it the way it is.
