I feel like the IndieWeb is a great example of commons-based peer production, as per Benkler’s definition.

It was Benkler (2002, p. 369) who, focusing on the digital commons, postulated the emergence of a new mode of production, which he called commons-based peer production: “Its central characteristic is that groups of individuals successfully collaborate on large-scale projects following a diverse cluster of motivational drives and social signals, rather than either market prices or managerial commands”.
