should not act in our own self-interest or we could destroy the
group. Yet their recent actions showed it was in fact no commons
because they held the only keys to Fahrenheit 451 it.
1. Whoever owns the "keys" to a CoP or commons owns the group (which
means if only a select few hold the keys, then it cannot be
considered a commons, although it may still be a CoP).
2. Whoever owns the group owns the archives (because it is in fact
not a commons -- it is only "leased" to the participants).
Chris Argysis was correct in that we have an espoused theory (the way
we think we act) and a theory-in-use (the way we really act).
