Connected Copies

Michael Caulfield, Hapgood, Jan 30, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's funny. Mike Caulfield wonders "why more OER sites don’t grab material from one another and populate their own sites with it, instead of linking out" while I wonder why they want to combine materials together instead of just linking to them. Clearly we're both grasping at something, but is it the same thing? Here's Caulfield today: "the current model of the web, which is based on the places where things live instead of the names of things, creates natural choke points and power inequities... A newer model would look like email, torrenting, or git, where multiple copies of things were stored across the web, but connected and authenticated by protocols, data models, or other conventions."
