Launch of the Open Policy Network

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Open Policy Network has now officially launched. Here's their version of open: "we’re announcing our first project, the Institute for Open Leadership. Through a weeklong summit with experts, accepted fellows will get hands-on guidance to develop a capstone project for implementation in their organization or institution." You can join the network but you must "support the Guiding Principles and Work Plan", "participate in the OPN email listserv and share information," and "attend monthly strategy/planning conference calls." It's like joining the Kiwanas Club! Anyhow, here is more information and endorsements from Creative Commons, SPARC, CETIS, OERu.
