Will The "Real" Community Please Stand Up?

Stephen Downes, Autounfocus, Apr 18, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley expressed surprise yesterday when he read my comment in OLDaily welcoming him to the learning object community. Of course, he always felt himself to be a member of that community. It's a different community, though, one that includes the leading lights in the community that brought us such things as IEEE-LOM. Of course I am not a member of that community and have, in fact, been openly critical of a lot of what they have been doing. All of this is new to Wiley, and my response (scroll down to the bottom to see it) left him "stunned" and "wondering where (I am) coming from." This afternoon, I tried to draw this out a bit, referring to things like my 'Problems and Issues' summation and my talk at IMS, to name a few. No doubt the discussion will continue; I will likely provide the entire exchange as an article later next week.
