The Commons

Category : Commentary/commons2.txt

Talking about the Commons. I had the chance to spend almost three weeks in Boston once - because I had the luck to be attending SIGGRAPH and then MacWorld - and I remember the Boston Common. It's a nice wide open green space in downtown Boston. The Boston Common and The Tragedy of the Commons - somehow I've always got them linked. I suspect I must have first come across this phrase while trolling the Harvard Square bookshops.

I believe the Asian psyche could benefit from a cross-pollination with this Western notion of the need to have self-restraint while using a shared space. Too often, the Eastern notion of "family first, harmony above all" gives people a license to leech.
