UF Phd candidate Alex Goldman founded www.sharability.org thinking that sharing makes more sense than buying. Say for example you need to dig a posthole. Once. Hopefully, never again! Does it make sense to run to the hardware store and buy your own posthole digger? Why not borrow one for an hour from a neighbor…
Sharing promotes community. You get to know your neighbors. Sharing reduces waste. Sharing saves you money!
Sharability dot org is a social networking website that is so state of the art it even uses Facebook connect to make it super easy to sign in.
Alex is giving a talk tonight at Gainesville’s Civic Media Center. If you can make it, it will be an opportunity to meet the guy behind this brilliant idea in person. If you can’t be there, you can read about it here .
