Really excited to be featured on Product Hunt today for our launch of Sharing. This has been the first step in the big vision from Day 1, and today we're finally ready to share that with the world. Storage was always a trojan horse for us -- our goal is to make it simple to access anything you could want, anywhere in the world. Think Dropbox for your physical stuff. Today's launch allows you to search items that are made available from your friends, request to borrow them in a few taps, and have them instantly available in your Omni once approved. They can be at your door anywhere in the Bay Area in under 2 hours, or shipped to you anywhere in the world. The whole team will be here to answer questions all day! I shared a few more thoughts personally on this launch as well:

It seems like Amazon is expanding and going deeper into markets every week. Do you worry that Bezos and team will move in this direction, offering second-hand goods on-demand across the country, @delk / @tmceod3?
@rrhoover I think Omni has a nice leg up on Amazon in that they already have huge amounts of people's stuff in storage. Not that Amazon couldn't catch up, but I like the social aspects of Omni - like Airbnb vs. Expedia.
@rrhoover @annaroubos We also think a lot about the difference in intake, single sku logistics management, and distribution as a relatively unique defensibility moat. Not in anyway saying Amazon couldn't do it, but actually a pretty dramatic shift in a really well oiled machine.
This is awesome. I'm long on Omni's vision and think this is a natural next step. Finally got my golf clubs to SF, so will definitely be putting them in my Omni. Use code 'ETTINGER' for a $25 credit πŸ”₯😏.
@andrewett Thx for the kind words!
Omni is going to be the company that finally solves peer to peer sharing. I've been active in the sharing economy since 2011, including time at Lyft, Collaborative Fund, and Getable, a startup that tried to build a marketplace for product rental - it simply wasn't possible without the liquidity of "owning" the supply. Omni has figured it out, with storage as the short play that unlocks unlimited possibilities down the road. With a relentless focus on the long game and the execution to back it up, @tmcleod3 @delk and squad are going to fundamentally change the way we interact with physical items. Super excited.
@danpierson The goal!
Love this app. The photography aspect of the service is what makes the whole Omni experience so high quality, and will make it hard for anyone to copy especially when it comes to monetization. Just like Airbnb took off in the early days thanks to professional photography of listings, Omni makes your valuables more valuable because of gorgeous, multi-angle photos in a beautiful app interface. Well done guys!
