Asian Studies alumnus featured in the Alcade
Posted: October 12, 2012
Brian Boitmann, BA Asian Studies and MA Asian Cultures & Languages, was featured in the Alcade for his community sharing website called Acts of Sharing.
From the Alcade:
"Acts of Sharing, which Boitmann calls by its acronym, is based on a simple premise: borrowing the things you need or want temporarily from the community around you. From movies and books to kayaks, guitars and power tools, AOS is an online system that allows users to build their own collection to offer for sharing, as well as search for items to borrow from other members of the community.
The website states the mission clearly: Saving money and living simply by developing even better relationships with those we know and love. Acts of Sharing is built on the fact that we have more together."
