The Edge of Authority

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, May 17, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have posgted some responses to questions about edupunk and authority to my Half an Hour blog. "At each stage of history, a little bit more ownership of knowledge was detached from the centralizing authority, and into the hands of the people, appearing first as the monarchy, then as the mercantile, then as the scientific, and finally as the corporate. Today, we are entering a new, fifth period of detachment, creating a new, as yet undetermined, duality against the existing central order."
