In a recent discussion online, I got thinking about how when it comes to information or resources we pay for things that we can get for free.
But what I’ve come to realise is that for me it’s not about getting the information, it’s about doing something with it. When you pay money for something you’re more inclined to use it, unless you don’t mind wasting money.
It’s also about trust and how much we value the resources.
Sometimes we forget that time, effort and care goes into the things people create.
I think we’re more likely to trust and value something with a cost from someone who has given us things we trust and value for free.
