There are many living examples, tools and methodologies available today that align with an open access economy, either directly and indirectly.

Physical communities

There are many thousands of 'intentional communities' in existence around the world - all with varying degrees of adherence to post-market economic values. The success of these communities also varies wildly depending on the community size, the personnel and challenges they face.

Notable well established communities include Auroville in India and Freetown Christiania in Denmark, but there are many others. Also check the Fellowship for Intentional Community to find intentional communities active in your area.

The Open Source Community

With time, more and more people are becoming aware of the wealth of free and open source software (FOSS) available online. For example, Linux and Ubuntu operating systems, TROM-Jaro, a trade-free operating system based on Manjaro, distributions based on FreeBSD such as NomadBSD, LibreOffice and OpenOffice productivity software, Apache web server, FireFox web browser, Brave web browser based on the Chromium web browser, CloudReady based on Chromium OS, Blender 3D graphics suite, GIMP photo editor, Kdenlive video editor, etc.

While creators of these software may not always ascribe to the values of a post-market world, using and contributing to this software is a healthy advance in this direction and inspires others to do the same.

Free Collaboration Networks

In our present society, for the most part, we get access to resources and services thanks to businesses. In a shared world that is based on the contribution motive instead of the profit motive, instead of businesses, the organizations that will provide us access to things will be fully volunteers and all provided will be 100% trade-free. That is what we call Free Collaboration Networks. These can take many different forms, sizes, structures and functions. They can range from a simple table on which to place objects that are free for the taking, to elaborate global organizations coordinating with apps. Free Collaboration Network directory
