Art of the commons?

Mauro told us about DevantArt. It is a website where users can upload their own art to share, choosing which type of license they'll have. It is becoming easier and easier to produce and distribute content generated by anybody. The only problem now is to navigate through the more than 50 million "deviations" that have been uploaded since 2000...

I already uploaded some of my own here... (much more on my homepage...)

This is one of the main features of Web 2.0, where any user can generate content, e.g. Wikipedia, Flickr, Blogger, etc. A nice follow-up from the Open Source movement. Where will it continue? Already people are moving to provide Open Access to science and all types of knowledge...
Knowledge is power! Knowledge to the people!
