A Post You Should Be Able To Finish Reading.

When I was waiting in the line for the bathroom at the art event called Space 4 Art, a girl gave me this little card that says this (below in the quote) on it.

“MISSING: (The Commons) The commons are ares both physical and digital that exist through a sense of shared ownership. The commons can range from public sideways to free software culture. The commons are important in that these spaces allow for the exchange of ideas, informations and materials. They also allow for conflict and debate to be aired out publicly. These place have been or are being reduced due to the privatization of public spaces (malls, schools, libraries, sports arenas, convention centers etc.) and initiatives to regulate the internet geared toward corporate interests.”

I don’t mind if teenagers don’t get this. But if you ever claim that you have college education, you better get this, and have patience to finish reading this post.
