Will I sign the declaration?

Jump to: navigation, search

Personally I would rather wait and see how the document is amended after the various comments have been processed and assimilated.

There has been some talk about inclusivity.

A point to ponder:

"inclusivity of the Open Education community" vs "inclusivity".

Use of the term "libre" aligns with the latter. Use of the term "open" and much of the associated "baggage" (e.g. CC-BY-NC- etc.) (and the wording in the declaration and the process its development followed) is aligned with the former.

Nevertheless, the work being done by all the "open" communities is important and admirable. Hopefully it all leads towards the same thing - but I am not so sure yet.

("the latter" above implies: "inclusivity" of _everyone_ in the global knowledge society.)

Kim that's a fair position and more than reasonable to wait and see whether proposed amendments will be incorporated into the document .

PS -- thanks to your postings on the net on the topic -- the debate has now opened up.
