Beware: CS is now becoming a for-profit corporation. What will it do with our donations?
CouchSurfing, the room-sharing service of choice for Burning Man attendees, free-spirited geeks and backpacking college students, just announced it's selling out and going corporate with $7.6 million in venture funding. Now users are in open revolt.
Once SC becomes a for-profit, no one can guarantee that it will not start charging or that it will not sell your private information.
This move from a non-profit to a for-profit is also illegal since thousands have donated and volunteered their time to contribute to the CS website's code.
