Economy. Moving towards a commons-based digital economy.
Incentivize the development and scope of digital platforms that do not base their sustainability in user's data exploitation, but in a commons oriented sustainability model, where users, funders and community take a step forward taking the lead of this sustainability.
Take advantage of taxation (specially to big digital corporations) to promote commons business models.
Make for-profit users of open data pay for it proportionally to their intensity of use.
Research different platform models in order to characterize them and develop data commons economic viability models.
Organize trainings about data commons exploitation and foster commons-oriented businesses.
Support data sovereignty and commons communities and ecosystems, with local impact.
This manifesto has been promoted by Tecnopolitica.net and Dimmons.net, research groups at the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute of the Open University of Catalonia, in the context of the DECODE project. It reflects the discussions and proposals of dozens of people and collectives involved in the Digital Democracy and Data Commons participatory process, in the co-creation workshops “Distributed architectures for data sovereignty: DDDC pilot kick off”, “Sharing Cities Summit”, “Data Control Wars”, “Conversation: data commons and breaches in surveillance capitalism” and “DDDC Sprint: DDDC Manifesto co-writing meeting”, which took place in Barcelona between late 2018 and early 2019.
The manifesto will remain open for amendments and contributions until December 2019. Then it will be released under a Creative Commons CC by-NC-SA 3.0
