Idea City 2003 Notes
So you may have been wondering where I have been these last few days. Idea City, a three day fest of speakers from a wide variety of disciplines, turns out to be an immersive affair with scarcely enough time to breathe, much less post newsletters. But because it is in my nature to share my experience, I collected my full set of notes from the event, scanned them, and posted them online. This is a bit of an experiment in conference blogging. You might hate it. But then again, you might not. By Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, June 21, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]

Proceedings of the Fourth National Technology Leadership Summit: Open Resources in Education
Detailed discussion of the concept of an "Educational Source Forge," a free and open source repository for educational materials. As Glen Bull and Joe Garofalo write, "Just as Richard Stallman found it necessary to employ copyright law to codify and protect a longstanding tradition in the software community, a general public license will encourage a similar practice in the educational community." Several papers follow this introduction, looking at the mechanics of such a proposal in detail. By Various Authors, CITE Journal, June, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]
