Why Sharing?

Sharing is the new cool. Not only in social movement but also in business as well. Experts predict that this stream will continue flowing and and even become our lifestyle, because sharing is a reasonable and sustainable way for living.
Have you ever wondered what’s the whole point that we live for buying and consuming, and we don’t even use all that stuff to the fullest? Sharing fills in that gaps. If you share your car, clothes, or books, they wouldn’t just sit around in your garage but would be used by someone who really needs them. Therefore, the goods would be used to the maximum of its lifespan. This is more affordable because you wouldn’t need to purchase a brand-new product. It is also more eco-friendly since things travel among people and still be in use instead of thrown away. And last but not least, people get connected through the sharing activity. Sometimes through the Internet or sometimes within the community, people in need will find each other and share their resources based upon trust. More and more solutions are coming out to match more relevant individuals in time.
Sharing is now easier than ever. Compared to its low barrier to entry, the change that it can bring is paradigm-shifting. Many enterprises are joining or being created seeing the potential market. Even existing economy magazines such as Forbes feature sharing economy and some outstanding entrepreneurs focusing their possibility.
Sharing culture is now a big deal. And that is why Share Hub would like to talk about it, and see more people joining with enthusiasm.

Then, what's Share Hub? And what does it do?

Share Hub (http://sharehub.kr) is a project powered by Creative Commons Korea. It’s the name of the project, as well as the website you’re looking at right now.
Share Hub brings useful information to users. It looks through sharing culture news and information inside and out, picks out noticeble ones and present to general Korean-speaking public. It also offers an intuitive infographic guide about using available sharing services.
Share Hub also provides a sharing service and project directory like Yellow Page to help people seeing sharing services all at once like one-stop-shopping.
