# Storify

Pool & Divide up is an elemental experience for human beings, ranging from sharing the bounty of hunting and gathering, to potluck dinners and, in American history, quilting bees and barn-raising among settlers on the frontier. A classic contemporary example of pool & share is open source software or Wikipedia. Contributors add to the pool of resources, and take what they want -- in this case, without diminishing the resource for anyone else, because digital code can be copied at virtually no cost.
