More Open

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

[ source ] "We should pause and ask the question," says David Wiley, "is more open always better?" I don't keep my house open for just anyone to drop by. So no, more open is not always better. He writes: But open is not the star of the show.

Well Played, Blackboard

George Siemens

However, open source initiatives like Moodle offer reasonable alternatives. Very little consideration was given to the strategic adoption of technology. Which means that decisions makers are motivated (partly out of fear of appearing ill-informed, partly out of not wanting to take risks) to adopt approaches that integrate fairly seamlessly across the education spectrum. Why buy an LMS when you can buy the educational process?

On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a suit

Harold Jarche

I can buy one of the best computers on the market and the richest person in the world is not able to get one that performs much better. The collaborative, networked enterprise saw its birth in open source software projects. You see, on the Internet, nobody knows you’re a suit … and that’s a major barrier to adoption.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

ID³ , - the Institute for Institutional Innovation by Data Driven Design, - is a new multidisciplinary non-profit institution formed to develop architectural frameworks, open source software and educational content for the protection, sharing and monetization of sensitive data.

Shifting Identities - From Consumer to Networked Creator

John Hagel

  Whether we look at the resurgence of crafts and hot rod cars, the rise of the “maker” movement, body hacking, social media or open source software, we find people who are investing more and more time and energy in the creation of things they are passionate about.  Many of us felt a deep seated need to achieve our potential, not by buying even more, but by discovering and developing our unique talents. Who are you? 

[berkman] Piracy in developing countries

David Weinberger

Q: Do people have a reason to buy legal works for anything except fear of enforcement? People buy legal works only for other reasons. E.g., the biz sw strategy is to allow rampant priacy to ensure universal adoption, and then they begin to enforce against the most vulnerable institutions: municipal gov’ts, etc. What’s the source of open source platforms here? Most govts have no demonstrated any consistent open source adoption strategy.

Learning in times of economic meltdown

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

The challenge for organizations is to use smart delivery, to replace classes with technology, to embrace open source, and perhaps to adopt a software-as-a-service model. Inge captured some points that didn’t make it into my notes, among them: more emphasis on open source/open resources; shift in company ethics, durable (energy) solutions; equiping people to manage the recession => that would be a business worth investing in.

OER Business Models - A Debate

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Lisa Petrides - IKSME Our mission is about maximizing all of these open access tools that enable breakthroughs in teaching and learning. The business model is based on helping faculty make the transition from commercial to open textbooks. All the content is CC-licensed content, and the platform is open source as well. It''s very much of a Linux model - the content itself should forever be free and open. open pedagogy is different from OER.

Doc Searls

Both pieces are in Wired , which is clearly on our side with this thing — especially since, if Marvin is right, Wired might someday need to pay the carriers for privileged carriage on what used to be the free and open (aka “neutral”) Internet. Are you ready to see the Net’s free and open marketplace sucked into a pit of pipes built and fitted by the phone and cable companies and run according to rules lobbied by the carrier and content industries?

Beyond Free ? Open Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I want to talk to you about the concept of free, the concept of open learning, the concept of networked learning in a networked world and the concept of the institution. You may in certain sense think of this talk, together with the other talks, as a rebuttal to the way institutions are approaching Massive Open Online Courses and open learning generally today.

Adaptive Path

The CRMs that I’ve looked at thus far are: Netsuite , Sage , GoldMine , Sugar , and Open Object. For example, Sugar and Open Object are open source options that have development communities adding features and functionality. With Sage and GoldMine you’re essentially buying a turnkey system (GoldMine is not hosted and runs on windows, Sage can be hosted online or on your own server).

When leaders are bosses, organizations naturally adopt the disciplines of top-down hierarchies to assure that the individual intelligence of the leaders is properly leveraged across the work of large numbers of people. When leaders are facilitators, organizations adopt the disciplines of self-organized networks that are designed to leverage collective intelligence. This is the remarkable power behind open source platforms.
