The Commons & P2P Transition

Reference on this site to "The Commons" is with recognition of the contributions of the broader socio-political-economic movement of the same name, in partnership with the P2P foundation. 

“Every commons, also ones that revolve around land or water, are knowledge commons, because the commoners must learn and apply knowledge in managing them. And all 'knowledge commons,' even ones based on digital systems and intangible creativity, are based on natural resources – the minerals needed for the computers, the electricity generated from fossil fuels, and so forth. The common denominator among commons is that each one is first and foremost a social commons – a social process.”
