Commons as an umbrella for social transformation: Wikimedia and free knowledge as digital commons
- Date & Time: Friday, July 13th, 16:30pm-18:30pm
- Location: 301
- Description: There is an each time larger emerging Commons paradigm. It builds upon commons tradition such as the natural commons well described by Nobel Economic Prize 2009 Elinor Ostrom, and it is reinvented by the new models of digital commons, such as Wikipedia. In this regard, we would like to reflect and exchange experiences and lessons on how commons as metaphor and umbrella for social transformation might open up new opportunities for Wikipedia/Wikimedia meaning, impact, expansion and networking.
