Some commentary and reactions to the dialogue from yesterday. Jared Stein writes, "Downes goes all socialist and argues that financial incentives discourage variety because the bland textbook sells more." Conviviality writes, "Unfortunately for the OER innovators and early adopters, what needs to happen to move the OER approach ahead is a lot more focus on the how, rather than on the what and why parts of the argument. A phase change really needs to take shape – one that involves actual practitioners, people who teach courses, normal humans, real instructors." Light in the shadows: "Two guys talking for 3.5 hours."
