Well, older telecom/technology systems restrict our ability to distribute our own products, esp. digital content. Emerging technologies offer the promise of being able to write/create, publish and distribute over the spectrum. It's all just 0s and 1s. For example, okayplayer.com thrived in the commons that is the Web/Internet because it (online community) creates the content, publishes and distributes via this global network. This is a commons. Now, imagine if other communities, including geographic, ethnic, etc. could do the same? Communities would be able to generate wealth that is broader in depth and scope.
