After a little friendly endorsement from none other than Warren Buffett, Airbnb — an online community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique accommodations around the world — is hosting a string of events this month in Omaha to boost awareness of the usefulness of its services during upcoming events such as the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting, College World Series, Big Omaha, Maha Music Festival and more.
