Interview with Yochai Benkler

Maggio 6, 2007

Can you please explain the concept of commons-based peer production and how it transforms the way we look at the economy?

The concept is made up of two distinct elements: commons, and peers. “Commons” refers to a way of organizing a resource. Roads, sidewalks, or piazzas are commons. It means that anyone can use the commons under some set of rules, or none, without asking anyone’s permission. Commons-based production can be commercial of non-commercial. For example, someone who performs in the piazza for money is pursuing a commercial commons-based model: they are using a commons as their space, unlike a performer in a
theatre.

“Peer-production” refers to a phenomenon of large-scale cooperation among people on a given project or problem. What typifies “peer production” is that it represents an alternative model of organizing people, alternative to firms and markets. Rather than responding to managerial commands, or to prices, peer producers use social motivation and communications to organize their efforts.
