About

This blog takes as point of departure an essay in five parts, which is a philosophical and political inquiry into the material nature of immateriality from a commoners’ perspective titled “Property, Commoning and the Politics of Free Software” that has been published in The Commoner, Issue 14, Winter 2010. The essay is divided into these chapters:

Pedersen, J.M. (2010) ‘Introduction: Property, Commoning and the Politics of Free Software‘, The Commoner, Special Issue, Volume 14, Winter 2010, 8-48.

Pedersen, J.M. (2010) ‘Free Culture in Context: Property and the Politics of Free Software‘, The Commoner, Special Issue, Volume 14, Winter 2010, 49-136.

Pedersen, J.M. (2010) ‘Properties of Property: A Jurisprudential Analysis‘, The Commoner, Special Issue, Volume 14, Winter 2010, 137-210.

Pedersen, J.M. (2010) ‘Free Software as Property’, The Commoner, Special Issue, Volume 14, Winter 2010, 211-286.

Pedersen, J.M. (2010) ‘Conclusion: Property and the Politics of Commoning‘, The Commoner, Special Issue, Volume 14, Winter 2010, 287-294.

While this is the point of departure for the blog, it might also depart from this origin to investigate related philosophy, jurisprudence and political economy tangents that are of concern for commoners and community-led development against land grabs, resource squeezes and other expansions of capital and erosion of subsistence. All within a framework of better understanding property relations and the architecture of commons.
