The web, and the software that helps us realize standards are a commons.  However, developing these standards to the point where they are truly standard and fully implemented and interoperable historically relies on investments being made independently from a comparatively small number of companies where we all ultimately pay very indirectly and have little practical  ability to affect the practical management of resources or priorities.

Open Prioritization is an effort to allow a more direct way for all of us to collectively to help shape and support the development of commons, guarantee that important things are getting attention or just expedite full alignment in a more predictable way.  A practical upshot of this is increased diversification of the funding of this commons.
