Knowledge, Learning, Community
Good overview of web 2.0 business models as applied to e-learning. I guess my overall reaction is disappointment at the thought that people still do not see the social value in providing learning for free, and must seek still to 'monetize' e-learning initiatives. I've been reading Al Gore's The Assault on Reason to day and am compelled to think that the disaster that happens when democracy is for sale is nothing compared to what will happen when learning is for sale.
