Tools for Citizens is an Open Educational Resource.

What should be good practice among every citizen is especially relevant for Open Source. Keep the intellectual Commons working!

Authors often depend on being visible as contributors. Help them so that they might continue their engagement as commoners.

Give something back to the community and to authors by publishing, using and sharing other good materials or foregrounding good authors.
Appreciate what others give you for free. The value of OER is not measured by money or authorities. Try to find the specific quality of each work.
