    Bank of Common Knowledge (BCC)

    A Platoniq.net project

    Where and how do we gather and share what we know? The Bank of Common Knowledge began in 2006 as a laboratory of citizen-to-citizen mutual education rooted in the expansion of free software, social networks and p2p filesharing systems.

    This second public action of the BCC takes the form of a market for the exchange of free knowledge: consultations, take-away theories, audiovisual manuals and live demos, with the aim of sharing information, experiences and useful tools geared toward achieving more independence in everyday life and taking advantage of shared resources.

    We all have something to learn. We all have something to teach. Make an offer, recommend it to someone or request information at:
