  3. 3. Readings ‣ ‣ Spiro : Signs Social Scholarship is Catching On Friedlander: Asking Questions
  4. 4. "the practice of scholarship in which the use of social tools is an integral part of the research and publishing process"

Spiro’s Evidence ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ Individual commitment by scholars to open access Development of open access publishing outlets Availability of tools to support collaboration Experiments with social peer review Development of social networks to support open exchanges of knowledge Support for collaboration by funding agencies More broadly, universities are emphasizing community as key part of graduate education.

Spiro’s Challenges to DS ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ Lack of awareness of social scholarship Intellectual property concerns Skepticism about the quality of electronic-only publications Lack of recognition for social scholarship Lack of time to make work available online Cultural obstacles Need for sound economic models for open access publication
  7. 7. Spiro’s Proposals ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ ‣ Develop tools that enable researchers to what they already do, but better; Make social scholarship cool; Assuage concerns about intellectual property; Experiment with new models for open access publication; Make the case that social scholarship is good and good for you

 and change it to work as you wish. Freedom to redistribute copies
 so you can help your neighbor. Freedom to distribute copies of your modified
 versions, giving the community a chance
 to benefit from your changes.
  13. 13. "The most experienced entrepreneurs can cling to the concept that your idea is something precious that must be protected from the world, and meted out in a controlled way. Lots of us hang on to the assumption that scarcity creates a proprietary advantage. It’s how many non-tech markets work."
  14. 14. "The four freedoms don’t limit us as creators — they open possibilities for us as creators and consumers.When you apply them to software, you get Linux,Webkit/Chrome, and WordPress.When you apply them to medicine, you get the Open Genomics Engine, which is accelerating cancer research and bringing us closer to personalized treatment. When you apply them to companies, you get radically geographically distributed, results-based organizations like Automattic.When you apply them to events you get TEDx, Barcamp, and WordCamp.When you apply them to knowledge, you get Wikipedia."
  15. 15.
