  • sorry Steve, really confused now as your presentation has a CC licence, but for this Slideshare page you have selected

    USAGE RIGHTS
    © All Rights Reserved

    Is the Road open or closed? I am also confused about your choice of CC license. How can you talk about content being Open when you use a BY/NC/ND license. If you are using a Non-derivative license then your content is not Open.

  • 26. “Wikipedia is different in that it doesn’t try to frame the creation of new entries with commissioned beginnings and fixed endpoints. It is open to anyone to initiate an entry on Wikipedia, and no entry is ever formally closed, since it is also open to anyone to keep editing and altering whatever is already there.”

  • 37. Open publishing: A tale of two papers
    Notes:
    In 2006/2007 I published 2 papers within a few months of each other. One was in a closed journal, and from submission it took 3 years to appear in print (there was a backlog of papers and ‘reviewer delays’). The other was in an open access journal and took 5 months to appear online.
    Long delays militate against good scholarship. Open access journals are now the first choice for many academics – with open peer review and transparent processes, and with academics opening up their work for public critique, open scholarship is in the ascendency.

  • 47. Some end notes (adapted from the Blonde Blog on poverty)
    Poverty isn't fun and it’s notfunny. When you're in poverty, you can't even think about havingfun.All your time is spent trying to figure out how you are going to survive another day.
    Poverty slows everything down--it's a drag on our world economy. Poverty has been slowing down creativity, and the forward movement of our society for muchtoo long.
    Poverty holds the world out of balance. Unbalanced things are not pretty. Poverty is ugly. Even uglier are the multi-national corporations and banks who take more than their fair share to keep much of the world’s population in poverty.
