Who are the AIrBNB lords in Geneva?

Who are the AIrBNB lords in Geneva?

Organisation: Le Temps (Switzerland)

Publication Date: 04/10/2015


To conduct this journalistic investigation, we scraped data from the AirBnb website and then analyzed information about owners in Geneva. We then identified “AirBnb lords”, alike Jasmina who owns more than a hundred flats. This clearly demonstrates that AirBnb, far from being an exchange plaform amongst friends, has become a real business place in hands of real professionals. Then, this investigation became collaborative. We had made public our making-of and published its source code, so that other media could replicate it. Le Soir (Belgium), Nice-Matin and Rue89 (France), Radio Montreal (Canada) used our recipe to offer their audience stories similar to ours and adapted to their region.
