"Sharing Economy" vs "Collaborative Economy"
« on: November 28, 2015, 10:44:25 pm »
So I've been going around correcting myself, when possible, where I've used the term, "Sharing Economy" out of ignorance. 

I should be using the term, "Collaborative Economy".

A "sharing economy" is a socialist type system, I've been informed.

I'll admit I put zero thought into the term before using it jokingly in my UIA promotion post. It sounded good.  :-\

Now that I've been educated on the matter I will begin using "collaborative economy".

I'm not very "#hash-taggy" aware and at times fall prey to using terms for no other reason than ... well, I'm not that smart and I just wanted to sound like all the cool kids .. and that always bites me in the ass.  :-\

So I'm here today to announced my UIA's are part of the Collaborative Economy! ;)

It's not socialist unless you are forced to share. If you share voluntarily it's complitely voluntarist thing to do and it has nothing to do with socialism.

Sharing is totally humane action and we shouldn't let socialists steal the word.
