Abstract: "The free software and open source movements are perhaps the most active, mature and self-aware advocates of the commons. But in truth, there is a teeming constellation of constituencies who are embracing the idea of the commons to advance their agendas: environmentalists, libraries, scholars, media reforms and many others. I believe we are on the cusp of a commons movement: a messy, uncoordinated, bottom-up assertion of a new political philosophy cultural outlook and vehicle for creative wealth, both economic and social."
