The knowledge commons: a collective sharing of all of humankind's knowledge that places the public good and the needs of scholarship at the centre. The knowledge commons is free of charge for anyone to read (open access), except where there are other public good imperatives such as protection of personal privacy. All who are qualified are welcome to contribute to the knowledge commons.

Friday's lively lunch will focus on one of the challenges to developing and sustaining the knowledge commons, copyright. For background on my perspective, see my post Creative Commons and Open Access Critique on my other blog, The Imaginary Journal of Poetic Economics http://poeticeconomics.blogspot.ca/2012/10/critique-of-cc-by-series.html

My other research-hobby is trying to figure out how to make the economics work.

And/or, what is that you are interested in or know stuff about?
