"Convening Cultural Commons"
I'm on my way this morning to NYC for a conference at NYU Law School on "Convening the Cultural Commons." The conference is focused on applications of commons governance tools and techniques in non-natural resource settings, such as informational, social, and cultural goods, ranging the pooling of scientific research to the provision of health care. For more information, see here. As someone who has dealt a good deal with common-pool natural resources, I find these extensions to the social goods quite interesting and expect to learn a lot at the conference.
