Knowledge, Learning, Community
In the recent discussions on Open Educational Resources (OER) I felt almost along in arguing for support of community-based content creation initiatives, as opposed to the megaprojects launched by large institutions that attract the great bulk of OER funding. But now comes this report that the German government will be funding the contribution of Wikipedia content. Not sure whether the Germans were listening to me or to someone else, but they were listening, which is the main point. Via Slashdot via Andrew Pass (where I left a comment in support of the initiative).
