Sharism is a term for the motivation and philosophy behind the collaborative building of value that results from sharing content and ideas. Inspired by user-generated content, Sharism states that the act of sharing something within a community produces a proper value for each of its participants: "the more you share, the more you receive". As knowledge is produced through crowdsourcing, this new kind of shared ownership leads to the production of goods and services where value is distributed through the contributions of everyone involved.
