Abundance, and Five Years of Blogging

An excellent article from Ross Mayfield (CEO of SocialText) on why sharing works.

When I sat down in my first economics class at UCLA, the professor wrote on the blackboard all we would learn, in really big letters:

SCARCITY

I've been blogging for five years as of this month, and here's what I've learned:

ABUNDANCE

I have discovered I have a lot to give.  And when I give, I notice others give more.

Some of them I've formed relationships with, and trust opens giving, but I have also learned to trust strangers to share in abundance.

Life is iterative, markets are not transactions and scarcity of attention is false.

Our learnings compound abundance and there may be no limit to what we can produce.
