Ok so I’m pushing the boat out a little by equating communism with ‘open source’ (then again I wouldn’t be the first – see here). C,mm,n (pronounced ‘common’) is a zero-emission car co-designed by three universities and the Netherlands Foundation for Nature and Environment. All technical details and blueprints are freely available online and everyone is encouraged to contribute to improving the design and the car’s sustainability – kind of like a Wikipedia for cars, people freely collaborating and sharing their knowledge. Capitalism being what it is, however, I can’t see these being made freely available for people to take from the common store. I’ll also wager a bet that Jeremy Clarkson doesn’t like it.
