Share or Die Summary

Share or Die: Voices of the Get Lost Generation in the Age of Crisis by Malcolm Harris

America stands at a precipice; limitless consumption, reckless economics, and disregard for the environment have put the country on a collision course with disaster. It's up to a younger generation to rebuild according to new forms of organization, and Share or Die is a collection of messages from the front lines. From urban Detroit to central Amsterdam, and from worker co-operatives to nomadic communities, an astonishing variety of recent graduates and twenty-something experimenters are finding (and sharing) their own answers to negotiating the new economic order. Their visions of a shared future include: * Collaborative consumption networks instead of private ownership * Replacing the corporate ladder with a "lattice lifestyle" * Do-it-yourself higher education As a call-to-action, "share or die" doesn't only refer to resource depletion, disappearing jobs, or stagnating wages. It refers to social death too, and to finding the common sense ideas and practices needed to not only merely survive, but to build a place where it's worth living. A series of forays into uncharted territory, this graphically rich collection of essays, narratives, and how-tos is an intimate guide to the new economic order and a must-read for anyone attempting to understand what it means to live as part of Generation Y. Malcolm Harris is the Life/Art channel editor and a writer at Shareable and managing editor at The New Inquiry, a criticism site devoted to collecting and promoting the work of young, unaffiliated writers. Neal Gorenflo is the co-founder and publisher of Shareable, a nonprofit online magazine about sharing.

Share or Die Reviews

I wish I'd read this book when I graduated. I wouldn't have been less lost, but the beautiful voices, stories and experiences in these pages would have helped me understand that, before I could find myself, I had to lose myself first. If you know someone who dreams of something bigger than being part of the rat race, please give them this book. ---Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing Herein lies the real lesson of the Internet. It may not be the one that marketers and investors want to hear, but it's the key to understanding the way people and businesses will be interacting in the peer-to-peer, digital reality. It's also at the heart of the current renaissance - an overturning of the scarcity-based, highly centralized systems that have been in place since the 1300's, and a rebirth of the values that make human society work." ---Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed If you're a well-meaning, well-educated, generous person, and you can feel yourself being cornered and hammered relentlessly by a faceless, wicked, out-of-control economy, then SHARE OR DIE is the book for you. ---Bruce Sterling, blogger, author and journalist Smart, funny, irreverent, resourceful, committed, visionary -- these terms come to mind as you read the passionate voices of the first net-native generation. Share or Die! not only depicts and explains the daunting challenges facing young people today, it delivers some very good news: A monsoon of creative, positive energies is already shaping a better future. ---David Bollier, scholar and activist of the commons, blogger at Bollier.org, and Cofounder of the Commons Strategies Group
