There is another site that was (is) quite popular called Couch Surfing:

There is a huge demand for such a service. Last year a friend stayed with me when he went to the SES conference. We went out for expensive dinners just about every night, and each time he picked up the tab he said that in total it would still be cheaper than getting a hotel, which in Chicago can go for $400/night.

Unfortunately, I could see the politicians and officials balking at this - recall recently the closing of a "dorm" by O'Hare used by pilots to nap for a few hours between flights?

It could definitely work, and introduce people with like interests for such an event.

Thanks Holly for sharing information about another service. I had no idea that this was already a somewhat market. I definitely see the need Mike. It will be interesting to see what happens over time if this model can work.
