GWO Science 2.0

  1. 1. Science 2.0<br />The idea of utilizing wikis, blogs and other Web 2.0 technologies as a potentially transformative way of practicing and advancing science. <br />Is it a resourceful tool or full of consequences?<br />
  2. 2. Science Today<br />Donna Haraway:<br />UCSC professor and critiquer of technoscience<br />Corporatization of science:<br /> Private ownership of patentable results leads to greater secrecy in research practices. Eg. OncoMouse is the first patented animal.<br />The public no longer has a place in the discourse of science. Public attitudes and knowledge about science and technology, or lack thereof, are used to exclude them from the process and to perpetuate the myth that science is not only different from other cultural practices but is, indeed, culture-free.<br />With open source, science can become a widely shared experience again.<br />
  3. 3. Open Source<br />Open source is a platform for self expression and collaboration.<br /> It is changing ways of thinking, working and doing business.<br />Characteristics:<br /> Decentralized authority that is open for anyone to share<br /> Money is not always the best motivator<br /> Broken up into modules<br />
  4. 4. Social Production<br />YochaiBenkler:<br />Harvard professor and a leading intellectual of the information age.<br />Information, knowledge, and culture is in the hands of every connected person in the world.<br />Human creativity and experience is invaluable and cannot be transmitted person to person. It is a critical input to production.<br />Humans have always naturally helped each other. The reason open source is becoming popular is because it is having major economic impact.<br />Social production is real and sustainable and it can be used as a tool.<br />
  5. 5. A Slow Start to Open Science<br />Posting on the web spontaneously is contrary to how scientists work. Articles are always peer reviewed and corrected before being published.<br />Success has always been dependent on reputation. Gathering patents, promotions and tenure that comes from being the first to publish a new discovery in prestigious research journals.<br />Scientists are skeptical of openness because they are in highly competitive fields.It feels like an open invitation to have your best ideas copied, exploited and published by a rivals.<br />How does anyone control the use or misuse of information that is readily available, especially potentially dangerous scientific research?<br />
  6. 6. Advocating for Science 2.0<br />Scientists have always built up their knowledge about the world by crowd-sourcing the contributions of many researchers and then refining that knowledge through open debate.<br />Scientists will find they are no longer competing with others but rather collaborating to be more productive. Rates of discovery will increase.<br />It is argued that Science 2.0 is safer for scientists than traditional journal research. Everything placed on the web, especially a wiki, gets a time-stamp which helps prove ownership claims.<br />A transparency in the scientific process allows the public to access current science and become more involved.<br />
