(definition: Internet Commons or Interconnection of
Commons) is a clearing house and research and development
forum for ideas and designs for new forms of human organization
using the medium of Cyberspace.
shareholder corporations, governments and other traditional models
of organization are failing to meet their objectives and increasingly
are not even surviving. This widespread failure is occuring against
the backdrop of the growth of the new organizational medium of
Cyberspace. The Intercommons was created to merge old and new
ideas of human collboration with the tools and methogologies of
virtual communities to create highly effective, shared-stakeholdership
organizations that can thrive and persist for the long term.
As there are
many efforts afoot to promote
new organizational paradigms often centered around the concept
of a "commons", we hope that this effort can serve as
an interconnection of mutually compatible commons projects.

Intercommons organizational design
The Digital Space Commons
Recently a privately
held, successful, seven year old company, DigitalSpace Corporation,
voted to adopt the Intercommons organizational design "Code
of the Commons" and reorganize itself as a for-profit
non-stock member/licensee company, changing its name to The
Digital Space Commons. We will be following the process at
this company closely and reporting updates on this site and on
