What are ?

Commons are shared resources; things which groups of people use and care for together.

A classic example is a sheep field which multiple farmers use—without fencing it into sections.

A lot of the academic work on commons focuses on natural resources like fields, forests and rivers, although recently people have been using to describe other things, like digital resources or physical spaces.

We're not used to commons! I'll post every day for about why we should be.
