College Lectures Should Be Free Online, Argues 'Wired Magazine' Editor in New Book

Jeffrey R. Young, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Jul 08, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is nothing that hasn't been said in these pages a hundred times (and I'm sorry about that, but in 17000 posts there's going to be some repetition of themes) but Chris Anderson certainly knows how to create a firestorm of publicity (said firestorm, not the book, being his main accomplishment here). The book is available for free on Scribd and Google Books (marketing tie-in there? The odds....). Interesting that the idea was received to a chorus of Boos from professors in the comments section.
