Digital Commons Meetup at Wikimania 2012

  1. 1. Digital Commons Meetup Wikimania 2012 Mike Linksvayer (@mlinksva) Washington, DC, US 2012-07-13commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burning_of_Washington_1814.jpg · Public Domain 1
  2. 2. Wikimedia movement & friendsIncredible progress. Things that were dreamy only a few years ago are almost reality! And important part of coalitions against new bad laws.Much progress from related free knowledge and free software movements.Super excellent! 2
  3. 3. Enclosure movementProprietary knowledge and software has also made incredible progress.Bad law&policy continues to increase.:-( 3
  4. 4. At least 3 methods of promoting and protecting commonslaw&policybuildingextralegalEach has reactionary and progressive aspects 4
  5. 5. Let’s scrutinize and optimize each and all togetherCommoners at great disadvantage due to non-concentrated benefits of good policy.But, we can and should take a longer view... 5
  6. 6. Law&policyA few rear guard defense actions successfulWe need a non-tepid progressive agenda, including challenging assumptions, emphasizing primacy of freedom and equalityRecognize the political significance of building... 6
  7. 7. BuildingFree knowledge & software invalidates assumptions of, mitigates, and builds constituency against bad policy.Each contribution to a commons is a strike against bad policy and dystopian future. That’s something to celebrate and proclaim! 7
  8. 8. ExtralegalIntensive curators of non-free material are fundamentally like Wikimedians.How can we engage with them, including making more contributors to free projects? 8
  9. 9. Cost of exclusionDifferential use of public domain and restricted material on Wikimedia projects an interesting but tiny indication of cost.Only underground mass collaboration to preserve and build on almost all of contemporary culture demonstrates massive cost. Imagine a world in which Wikipedia is not unusual. 9
  10. 10. Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.Wild speculation: the Wikimedia movement is awesome, but where is the wiki vanguard?Non-wild speculation: we need to learn from history of and share with non-digital commons movements. 10
