Share Or Die! New E-book Released

Editor's Note: I have two articles in this book- "How to Build a Housing Coop" and "How to Start a Worker Coop," which I may later post to this blog along with updates, permission permitting.

Share or Die is the first collection of writing from Generation Y about post-college work and life in the 21st Century. A new economy based in collaboration rather than competition is growing, and young people are at the cutting edge. Unsatisfied with their parents' communities, 20-somethings are using technology to build an entire infrastructure of social entrepreneurship dedicated to using less and sharing more. Share or Die chronicles some of these projects and gives readers the tools they need to join this new economy.
