Select Resources on the Commons and Commoning

We carefully selected the items on the list below from 100s of commons related documents on the Web. There's something essential here for the novice and experienced commoners alike, for those passion is cultivating commons in organisations or in personal life, for consciousness aficionados or social change agents who see the commons as a practical way to transcend the state/corporate status quo.

Whatever brought you to this page, pick that document first, which triggers your fancy. Then, just to stretch a bit your comfort zone, choose another one to look up that doesn't seem interesting at all. :-)
