Elgoog (The Tracker) is a versatile simulation game designed to be adaptable to different contexts. In a simplified and didactic way, it reproduces several scenarios that emulate both real and imaginary experiences, so players can think of ficticious situations that can shed light on an organization's problems and obstacles. It also can represent new situations, so participants can learn to solve them in a cooperative way by contributing with new ideas, connections and collaborators still to be had into account. Participants must play roles that involve different degrees of cooperation or rivalry, and solve challenges by means of making decisions that will affect the situation being discussed.

It is a process which takes place in social software environments, such as common websites like (favorite links) or Flickr (photos). This game belongs to a series of methodologies and experimental strategies intended for the establishment and dynamisation of a local Common Bank of Knowledge. The game series is called P2Pedagogics and includes different exercises, in which methodologies of free software, P2P systems and social networks are explained or applied to processes of collective organization, production and common learning. a) Concept, practise, tool in which it...

MediaLabPrado (Madrid) gathers a group of scholar and activists to study how to make visible and understandable the commons. For more than 2 years different approaches have been taken and the main criteria has been collaboration and openess. This approach emulates laboratory practices that is the reason for the name: Commons Lab.

Thus, by looking at a fragment of the world, it can be seen in its entirety, which is to say that several variables are sufficient (those that make it possible to plan, structure, and order) to gain a general...
