The Information or Knowledge Commons is a new phenomenon made possible by the creation of the Internet. The following short book will describe what this phenomenon is, and will trace its history. This text is a group class project for a class with the same name. While studying the Information Commons, we felt it would be useful to actually add content to it in the form of a short Wikibook.
