TECHCRUNCH reported yesterday that Couchsurfing just received 7.6 million in venture capital funding, and before the hippie has even had a chance to put on a pair of penny loafers, there’s talk of how this grassroots, community-based program has sold out. How it’s going to leave a void in the travel community. That money will ruin them.
As someone who has been an active part of the Couchsurfing community since 2006, I have to say, calm the fuck down. This has potential to be a wonderful thing.
