The term "knowledge commons" refers to information, data, and content that is collectively owned and managed by a community of users, particularly over the Internet.
Once again, the promise of a knowledge commons is best made evident in the disagreements and difficulties in determining who and how it should be managed
Examples of knowledge commons
The knowledge commons is a model for a number of domains, including Open Educational Resources such as the MIT OpenCourseWare, free digital media such as Wikipedia, Creative Commons –licensed art, open-source research, and open scientific collections such as the Public Library of Science or the Science Commons, free software and Open Design.
- Open Educational Resources
- Creative Commons
- Public Library of Science
- Science Commons
- Free software
Knowledge commons is a misnomer bcos there is no such thing as knowledge. (!!)
What there IS/ARE is/are practices of knowing, communicating and organising.
So a 'knowledge commons' is a commons of literacy and (collective) labour power, thro which commoners are able to capably understand and organise their practical life as a commons, in a world of commons. It's a cultural commons.
