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.

During a career that spanned parts of four decades, Steve Spingola´s reputation as a tenacious homicide detective earned him the moniker ´´the sleuth with the proof.´´ Now, the investigator with a national reputation for excellence takes listeners on de facto ride along to revisit unsolved murders, reminisce about Milwaukee´s underworld, and examine the suspicious drowning deaths of young men in the hard-drinking college town of Lacrosse, Wisconsin. ´´In a four-part segment entitled ´´The Detectives in the Rye,´´ Steve Spingola does an outstanding job detailing why the strangulation murders of prostitutes and others involved in the vice underground are difficult to solve,´´ said retired Milwaukee PD detective Larry Powalisz. ´´In great detail, he explains how killers with a slightly different signature often target those from the same victimology demographic.´´ Spingola also takes a critical look at the post 9/11 world of government surveillance, including cellular telephone and credit card tracking, the spread of facial recognition software, the storing of all emails and telephonic communication, private sector DNA sharing, and intrusive drone technologies that threaten to undermine the privacy and liberty of all Americans. ´´As a lieutenant of detectives, Steve Spingola taught me that an investigator´s real pursuit is the truth,´´ wrote Eric Donaldson, a 20-year Milwaukee Police Department veteran. ´´When explaining the facts behind a story, he brings skill and acumen to the table. In a crowded literary genre, authenticity is king and Steve Spingola brings it.´´ ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Newman.

The benefits of living in a digital, globalized society are enormous; so too are the dangers. The world has become a law enforcer’s nightmare and every criminal’s dream. We bank online; shop online; date, learn, work and live online. But have the institutions that keep us safe on the streets learned to protect us in the burgeoning digital world? Have we become complacent about our personal security - sharing our thoughts, beliefs and the details of our daily lives with anyone who might care to relieve us of them? In this fascinating and compelling book, Misha Glenny, author of the international best seller McMafia, explores the three fundamental threats facing us in the twenty-first century: cybercrime, cyberwarfare and cyberindustrial espionage. Governments and the private sector are losing billions of dollars each year fighting an ever-morphing, often invisible and often supersmart new breed of criminal: the hacker. Glenny has traveled and trawled the world. By exploring the rise and fall of the criminal website DarkMarket he has uncovered the most vivid, alarming and illuminating stories. Whether JiLsi or Matrix, Iceman, Master Splynter or Lord Cyric; whether Detective Sergeant Chris Dawson in Scunthorpe, England, or Agent Keith Mularski in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Glenny has tracked down and interviewed all the players - the criminals, the geeks, the police, the security experts and the victims - and he places everyone and everything in a rich brew of politics, economics and history. ungekürzt.
