Trustroots is a hospitality exchange network run by a UK non-profit foundation. The software is open source. It was started in December 2014 is being built by a small team of activists who felt that the world of sharing is being taken over by corporations trying to monetize people's willingness to help each other. Same team brought you also Hitchwiki, Trashwiki and Nomadwiki.

History

Here's some ideas for names and descriptions that were floating around before Trustroots was launched.

Name for a new Hospex network

We sent out to a bunch of people and asked them to suggest names for the new project. Initially the codebase was just called "Bikeshed".

Initial description

  • Community site about sharing (rides, meals, info and whatnot) with hospitality exchange in core. Aims to be little bit hippie and for nomads at the beginning, but also has long term goals to reach more mainstream audiences. Wants to change how people behave by encouraging them to "share".
  • Something along lines hitchwiki/nomadwiki BW/CS/FB
  • Trust in the core of the site.
  • Hospex

History

  • Started to collect names: February 18, 2014
  • Initially name was suggested on June 10, 2014 by Kasper.
  • We finally decided on it on Dec 10, 2014 together with Kasper, Mikael, Callum, Natalia and Carlos.
