I didn't get a chance to see Martin Weller at ICDE last week but I'm still able to enjoy his throughts from the cconference in this post. It's a nice rethinking of his role in the promotion of open, and of large institutions like the Open University in the open learning ecosystem. Some of the thingss he sees as important: reclaiming the history of 'open' (it has, indeed, been appropriated and commodified); redefining what is meant by an 'open university'; advocating for use (as oppozsed to production) of OER; and examining hypotheses around OU course production.
