Don’t Whine, Compete! Posted on February 18, 2012

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Feb 21, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley makes a good point and it should be clearly understood. Right now, the battle between traditional publishers and open (or free) publishers is over the same product - plain textbooks distributed as text-plus-images. And publishers need to realize that if they truly offer a better product they should innovate and compete. After all, if people can produce something of equal quality for free (or almost nothing), then they shouldn't have to pay for it.
