UF Phd candidate Alex Goldman founded 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 .


About Michael Levin

Michael loves sharing what he's learned about organic lifestyles like living off the grid and bicycle commuting. He calls it "lifestyle entrepreneurship". He's into organic gardening, mindful living, and realizes that we only have this life and each other. His favorite quote is "The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both." (James A. Michener)
