Behind the scenes of What We Got: DJ Spooky’s Journey to the Commons

Stealing the Commons from the Goose

with 2 comments

Check out this awesome animation about The Commons that incorporates an ancient English folk poem about the subject.  Brought to you by Laura Hanna of Hidden Driver.

I’m proud to say that one of her inspirations is David Bollier and his new book, Viral Spiral.  David is an advisor to our film.

Enjoy!  Share your thoughts.

  2. Thanks for the reference to Karl Polanyi, whom I had to look up. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Polanyi).
