“Common sense isn’t”. So what should we make of OpenMind? Thousands of statements of common sense input by contributors (then licensed, ugh), available either in their raw format or as a computer program.
The GPL-licensed raw statements have the gnomic banality of so much conceptual and net.art that making art using the dataset is irresistible:
A box can hold things
A flag is for displaying in public the political group of the owner of the flag
A goldfish is a type of carp that makes a nice pet
A lawn is a place outside where grass grows
A nightgown is a long, loose garment worn to bed
