the social upside of sharing

there is a social upside to sharing the product of one’s labors. Doing so sparks conversations, which may lead to the productive exchange of ideas. This is how we collectively improve. Sadly, society has become less social. In our post-social world, we don’t converse as much as we scream past each other. Social media is nothing but a war for attention. Our media rewards — and is driven by — outrage and the cheap clicks it generates.
