What is the commons?

The commons is a social regime for managing a collectively-owned resource. The commons is a resource plus a defined community and the protocols, values, and norms devised by the community to manage its resources.

I’m grateful to David Bollier for these and many other observations about the commons.

Many patterns, many voices going the same way

Many patterns heading the same way
