Sharing is multiplying

St. Augustine once said, ‘if a thing is not diminished by being shared with others, it is not rightly owned if it is only owned and not shared.’

Knowledge that is not diminished by being shared with others is shared today on Wikipedia and Coursera.

Recorded music and video that are not diminished by being shared with others can be streamed on Spotify or Youtube.

Conversations and interviews that aren’t diminished when shared are available today as podcasts.

Software code that does not diminish when shared has given rise to the open source movement.

St. Augustine would be proud of the 21st century, for we have invented several means for discovering his vision. Besides, things that don’t diminish when shared with others end up growing and multiplying instead.
