Knowledge Commons .de » Peer-producing knowledge: a game-changer for developm... - 4 views

    Learning modes and principles of open, commons-based peer-production therefor have the potential to provide the "gold standard" of enhancing future skills, competencies, connections, capacities of people and their organisations on a global scale. In short: peer-to-peer learning around open, commons-based peer-production is a game changer in international development cooperation.

Tell Everyone by Alfred Hermida - 2 views

    This recently published book, by a University of British Columbia journalism professor named Alfred Hermida, questions how the new culture of sharing and collaboration-and the pace of change that sharing enables-changes our lives. It's particularly interesting for us because it doesn't back away from the challenges that open access poses for us: how does being both creator and consumer change us? How does blurring the lines between these two change the way we think about the balance between copyright and the public good? Hermida doesn't tackle these last questions directly, but he provides a useful lens for thinking about our changing roles and how open knowledge and sharing need to reflect that.

    Considering the book's focus on sharing, it's somewhat ironic that it's not open access, but I highly recommend checking it out. It's received significant attention in the Canadian press and is exactly the kind of mainstream attention that can get conversations about open access started.
    Not everything can be shared. Aside from the 14 reasons what makes people share knowledge is because they are trust each one with the knowledge that they will share will be beneficial to the receiver of the knowledge or learning. Knowledge is power when shared.

New source to share - 2 views

    I shared this in the discussions section over in the MOOC home area. This is a fascinating piece of research about the attitudes of student knowledge sharing, mainly graduate students in research. I'm a stat nerd, and I especially dig that the number of downloads is shared.

Sowing the seed: Incentives and Motivations for Sharing Research Data - 4 views

    In sharing knowledge and learning, research data must be included. I agree that there must be incentives to motivate researchers share the data and its result. we are not what we are now if we have not learned what, who, why and how we were.
    thank you very much for sharing this document that effectively connect the dots on an economic ground and made me know the LARM audio research project that might be helpful for this one field of research of mine

About - iStock - Build It and They Will Come - 0 views

    History of iStock

    In 2000, if you wanted to load up on digital stock photos you had to buy a CD-ROM. But iStock realized that in the 21st century the old way of distributing images wasn't going to work anymore. Instead of trying to sell physical copies of digital files, iStock put images online for free and saw a creative community grow around this radical idea. Web designers loved it and downloaded as many pictures as they could. Some of them had digital cameras and started uploading images of their own. When the monthly bandwidth bills topped $10,000, we asked the iStock community if they would support paying for images. The response was overwhelmingly positive.

Open data - the dark side, with Alan Patrick - 2 views

    At the January 31st lunchtime lecture, Alan Patrick, co-founder of Broadsight, examined what lessons can be learnt from past technologies such as search, and the most likely safeguards required over the next few years. How do prevent abuse of open data by those with ill-intent, or is this a pipe dream?

    Open data is expounded as a force for good but is there a risk of glossing over its potential for harm? Main points: There is no such thing as anonymized data and data does not create clarity.
    He suggest the following consequences:
    1. Accept there is a dark side.
    2. Stopp hackers.
    3. Understand whose data it is.
    4. Start the governance early rather than late.

Suetzl, Stalder, Maier, Hug (Eds.): Cultures and Ethics of Sharing (2011) - 3 views

    This is an interdisciplinary open access publication on sharing after a conference being held in Innsbruck, Austria 2011.
    I would especially like to recommend the article by Katherine Sarikakis (Sharing, Labour and Governance on Social Media: A Rights Lacuna), who is dealing with invisible 'online labour' on SNS from a political economy perspective. Very interesting one, because, in my opinion, this also applies to open knowledge projects as well..
    But also the other articles by Andrea Hemetsberger ('Let the Source be with you!' - Practices of Sharing in Free and Open-Source Communities), Volker Grassmuck (The Sharing Turn: Why we are generally nice and have a good chance to cooperate our way out of the mess we have gotten ourselves into), and the others (half of it in English, the other in German) are definitely worth reading!

Sharing is Caring - Statens Museum for Kunst - 2 views

    Merete Sanderhoff edited this collection of 18 articles on the topic of Openness in the cultural sector (predominantly museums). An excellent resource as museums struggle to retain image rights while at the same time fulfilling their both their educational and preservational missions.

    "Compartir es servir a los demás"

    Mucha de esta información sería desconocida si no es por el esfuerzo de una comunidad. Gracias por compartir.

    Much of this information would be unknown if not for the efforts of a community. Thank you for sharing
    Very good work. Thank you for sharing.
    Andy, I have read Merete's work and it is fascinating reading. I have been thinking about openness in museums for some time. When I have suggested to some museum professionals that they open up their collections for reuse, remixing and redistribution they have reacted with horror. Partly this is an attitude issue. They view themselves as the "custodians" of our cultural heritage and for that reason may be reluctant to see that heritage be used in ways that they have little control over.

    I did write a long blog piece some time ago on which museums are allowing open access to their online collections. It's a bit out of date now as other museums have opened up their images since I wrote the piece - such as the Guggenheim and the British Library collection on Flickr. Still, I thought you and others might be interested:
    This is really interesting! Thanks for sharing - I'll be reading this on my commute this week. The juxtaposition raised between safeguarding collections and allowing access (and possible re-use) is enlightening.
    Caring for collection being shared is also a part of knowledge openness to access because all collections are precious for its timeless value , memoirs, and cultural heritage.
