Todays economic system, premised on the sale of physical goods, does not fit the information age in which we live. The capitalist order requires the maintenance of an artificial scarcity in goods that have the potential for near infinite and almost free replication. The sharing of informational goods through distributed global networks - digital libraries, file-sharing, live-streaming, free software, free-access publishing, the free-sharing of scientific knowledge, and open-source pharmaceuticals - not only challenges the dominance of a scarcity-based economic system, but also enables a more efficient, innovative, just and free culture. In a series of seven explorations of contemporary sharing, Matthew David shows that in each case sharing surpasses markets, private ownership and intellectual property rights in fostering motivation, creativity, innovation, production, distribution and reward. In transforming the idea of an information economy into an information society, sharing connects struggles against inequality and poverty in developed and developing countries. Challenging taken-for-granted justifications of the status quo, Sharing debunks the tragedy of the commons and makes the case for digital network sharing as a viable mode of economic counterpower, prefiguring a post-capitalist society. Matthew David is Associate Professor of Sociology at Durham University.
Four years ago, Jeremy and Alice committed the ultimate taboo. After being forced to share a bed during a family reunion, brother and sister crossed the line from siblings to lovers. Swept up in a sexual fever hotter than either had felt before, they struggled to keep their relationship a secret from their family. Now Alice is married, and Jeremy is an award-winning author, but their feelings for each other havent faded. Can they leave the past behind, or will they rekindle their forbidden romance?----- PG Excerpt -----Her fingers slid over my tricep as I sat down at the counter again. You were always in good shape, she said. Dont play the false modesty card with me.No, no, no, I shot back. Youre the one who keeps saying shes gross. Thats the pot calling the kettle black.Oh? She took a sip of cocoa. So youre saying were both super-ultra-mega-hot and should stop pretending to be mere mortals?Weve already established youre a garbage person. Just be satisfied that youre a better looking garbage person than most.She tried not to smile too much into her mug. You do think I look okay, though?I squeezed her hand. What do you want me to say? Tell me what it is and Ill say it, but weve already agreed that we... Saying the rest was harder than I thought. I felt the lump rise in my throat.She chanced another shy glance in my direction. I know, she said. I know, I just...everything thats happened over the last year... She shut her eyes tight, trying to squeeze the memories out of her ears. Ive thought about you so many times. And I wanted to call just to hear your voice. But I didnt, because I was worried youd... I thought maybe you were mad at me.Not mad, I said. Just the opposite. We opened a door and it was tough going back through it.This time the glance wasnt shy at all. It was honest and sad, and steadfast. I never went back through the door, Jeremy.It was a relief to hear her say that. What wed shared four years ago was deeper and more powerful than any relationship Id ever had. I spent a long time trying to let that go, I said. Yeah... She set down her mug and pulled a loose bang behind her ear. Is it okay if I stay here, though? Not for long, just...for now?Of course, I said. I told you that.And whats the rule about sleeping in the same bed?I hadnt expected that, but there it was. For the first time she looked like her old self; she had that same mischievous smile Id grown up with, loved, and then loved in a whole new way when wed become more than siblings. The uncomfortable lump in my throat was joined by an even more uncomfortable lump in my pants, and my heart started to race. Do you really think thats a good idea, I said, after what happened last time?She nodded vigorously. No, yeah, totally. I was just joking. I know thats not appropriate. Just trying to lighten the mood.I frowned at her, and she shot a mocking frown back at me. I was the first one to break, and it was good to see her smile again. Will you hug me again, at least? she asked. I did, and she rested her face against my chest again, carefully avoiding the wet spot from last time. And make me a fire, she said in her most petulant voice. I demand a fire, big brother.It was cute, but she had already begun playing a dangerous game. The way she said big brother would always carry with it a dirty, ulterior meaning. She hadnt called me that for years. Not since the last time we were alone together on a winter night just like this...

Submissive wife Suzi was auctioned for charity and to her surprise, ended up as the weekend property of a pair of wealthy wives. She had already indulged many of their fantasies but now found herself on her hand and knees, being treated like a dog. Extract: The two women at the table didn´t rush themselves, enjoying a leisurely breakfast and a catch up with old friends. Suzi heard the conversation gradually wind down and then her owners stood up, along with several other men and women. ´´Who´s ready for some good old-fashioned dog breeding then?´´ Charley asked the room and several enthusiastic people agreed. Suzi flinched at the word breeding but then she was on the pill so that shouldn´t be a worry. What was a worry, however, was the size of that big black cock. She seriously doubted whether she would be able to take it. Suzi was led off again on her hands and knees, this time accompanied by several of her friends from the auction but this time she didn´t dare speak to anyone. Puppies can´t talk! They crossed the dining room and went out on to the long corridor, ending up in a big room with a wooden floor that hurt her knees. Gritting her teeth, she kept going until she was led on to a thick rug and allowed to sit. The other puppy bitches were on similar rugs around the room. Several of the smart men from last night stood around watching and two of them carried a heavy padded frame over; dropping it in front of her. Charley patted the top. ´´Up you get Suzi, there´s a good girl!´´ She climbed up and found it was designed to support her lower back, holding her rump high in a very obvious position that held her pussy wide open for anyone. Charley quickly located the straps on the frame and wrapped them securely around Suzi´s wrists, thighs, ankles, waist and finally her neck. She was now completely immobile; and available. ´´That´s a good doggie,´´ said Charley. ´´We´re going to need you nice and secure when Satan mounts you.´´ ungekürzt. Language: English.
