This is a short essay on dialogue, culture and identities. In addition to the public good policy adopted by the Catalan Government over the last four decades, it examines the Catalan language from a commons-based perspective. It contends that its survival and evolution in a digital age will mainly depend on the social institutions that can be created to manage it as a commons good. To foster cultural innovation and plurality, against diglossic stances, blockchain technologies could be used by Catalan speakers to create a social community to freely manage their own language.
