Use Convivial Tools

What types of tools and technologies are best suited for commons? What strengths and limitations do they have?

Use Convivial Tools source

Commoners generally develop, use, and maintain tools that are open, accessible and modifiable. This allows the technologies to be adapted to different production needs and contexts. By liberating people from the restrictive terms of use that businesses often impose, commoners have the freedom to innovate to meet their particular needs.
