What do you want to share today?

Alec posted this link and while I haven’t fully digested it, there were a few key quotes that stood out,

Here’s an idea: put a sticky note on your desk that says, “What do you want to share today?” I’m not kidding. Then, if anything interesting comes your way: Share It! The easiest way to both start and keep sharing is by using different kinds of social software applications. Your first meme you want to share may be small, but you can amplify it with new technologies.

This is one reason twitter is so popular. Within a short period of time, you can build a network and reach an audience.  By the way, if you’re still not using twitter, check out this link, courtesy Matthew Tabor.

…Sharism is not Communism, nor Socialism. As for those die- hard Communists we know, they have often abused people’s sharing nature and forced them to give up their rights, and their property. Socialism, that tender Communism, in our experience also lacked respect for these rights. Under these systems, the state owns all property. Under Sharism, you can keep ownership, if you want. But I like to share. And this is how I choose to spread ideas, and prosperity.

I’d never heard of Sharism but I’m sure Shareski is a derivative of it that is protected under the use of Creative Commons, or something like that.  The cavaet? The less you share the less power you have.
