  • somehow I feel your review a bit... oversimplified. Open/free vs Closed/private is too binary, oversimplified and static. And then 'community as asset' -- why not to mark 'free' natural resources as assets... well, other quotes ain't much better. Isn't it? There were other thoughts, less developed - pity you won't popup around Helsinki any time soon to discuss. Your previous presentations at NoHo had been much better.
