Share or Die: A Storytelling Contest for the Sharing EconomyBy Kadley Gosselin July 3, 2012
Shareable Magazine, who partnered with Latitude on our The New Sharing Economy study, has launched a new book (with Cory Doctorow and Malcolm Harris), Share or Die: a collection of stories from young people who live a lifestyle based on “sharing instead of shopping.”
As part of the book launch, Shareable is hosting a contest seeking compelling stories of your experiences with sharing; whether it was renting a Zipcar, hosting a clothing swap or becoming a member of a food co-op, they want to hear (via text or video submission) how sharing has had a positive impact on your life. Shareable will compile a video montage of entries that will serve as the official book trailer and choose six winners who submit the best entries to receive varying amounts of cash to to keep, use as credit towards a sharing service or donate to the nonprofit of their choice.
Borrowing a page from SXSW’s PanelPicker book, the stories will be judged partially by public votes (50%) and a panel of judges composed of leaders in the sharing community. The contest is open until July 23, 2012 so get your entry in soon. View and vote on current entries here.
