I believe we all can share a little of what we have. A bit of something can sometimes be hugely useful to another person, so I assist, teach and consult about photography, design tools, software and other stuff I've been using. I also love to team up with other creatives, and complement them on the digital tech stuff, where my geeky profile is often helpful to those who hate or feel uncomfortable with technology.
