Domains, Publics and Access. A Wiki In Progress On Access Archeology

Domains, Publics and Access is an ongoing online collection of projects related to current access forms such as: open government, open design, citizen science, collaborative economy, commons, co-ops, crowdfunding, DIY, free culture, community currencies, p2p, piracy, etc. The main goal is to preserve initiatives that appear and disappear in different countries because each project is the declaration of a possible future. That's why the project as the poetics of social forms is studied by an access archeology that explores the hypothesis of the emergence of new bottom-up institutions. The hypothesis is latent in the work of several authors, but Geert Lovink and Ned Rossiter pose it explicitly around the online organized networks.
