[2b2k] YouTube leadership

David Weinberger

Last night, I gave the usual examples of Web leadership: Linux, Wikipedia, and Open Source more generally. Most Web users don’t have any experience of contributing to Linux, Wikipedia, or Open Source projects, but we do routinely encounter YouTube and music sharing. That experience of organizing without organizations (a la Shirky), leaderlessly, is defining the upcoming workforce (as the young love to be referred to as).

David Weinberger

” She refers to Ellen Ullman’s “ Close to the Machine ” that talks about the utility of being arrogant enough to obsess over a project, cycling back to humility. ” Critical study of selected Github pull requests — how open source projects work, how to rise in the community. ” There’s no better example of this, she says, than open source software.

Free and Not Free

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

When I asked Richard Stallman about the use of open licenses for educational materials, first he complained because I didn't use the word "free", then he said that he wasn't interested in educational content, that his arguments applied specifically to software.
