Consumer task marketplace TaskRabbit is changing CEOs this morning, going from co-founder and IBM coder Leah Busque to former Hotwire CEO Eric Grosse.

When I visited them both earlier this week, Grosse seemed confident in the company’s (and his) new direction, “Much like travel helped turbo charge e-commerce back in early days — the late ’90s and early 2000s — I really think [that’s] what TaskRabbit is up to here. The broader concept of collaborative consumption is going to be a very big part of how the next decade unfolds.”

If anyone isn’t quote clear on what Taskrabbit does, here is a pretty in-depth article #humblebrag.  The company currently is riding off of $6.85 million  in funding from First Round Capital, Shasta Ventures, among others. Best of luck to you Eric.
