I was travelling around the interior of my Village this morning and found really interesting species of Birds which I cannot remember seeing it in Chennai (As we have many distractions to look into nature). I remember attending a session in Tamil Nadu Science Forum on Ornithology. Based upon the understanding from the Session, the data around us, nature, the locality, the places and other kinds of stuff are in great demand to be in Commons. Such data are highly populated in the Urban Side as we have more and more people from the villages flooding towards the cities (Urbanization). The data with respect to one’s locality plays a major role in preventing Data and Contribution Centralisation. Still, we could see the absence of streets in villages when compared to the city even though we have a strong OSM Community. Similar in the case of Tamil Wikipedia, we have contributors and technical kinds of stuff but need to be implemented and utilized for the local needs.
Coming to the point, these data of Species, Rivers, Wells, Panchayat Office, Roads are needed to be in Commons and needed to highly populated by the activists who already know the importance of it and parallelly we need to build a strong community understanding the Commons and its importance which automatically leads to contribution. I have contributed some of the bird species in my Village and planning to make it a regular practice. Let us see how it goes.
