I've been working on a piece that i'd like to contribute to the @okfn blog, when it's ready. It started out as a fairly straightforward attempt to answer Charles Arthur's question on "Twitter" - "will this Open Access / 'academic spring' discussion end up going the same way as Free Our Data/ Open Geodata?"
I try to say things like "it does not look the same yet because there is no moral equivalent of OSM", then veer off into a lengthy criticism of the Zooniverse with which i feel quite pleased.
If anyone felt like reading this early draft and offering comments, I'd be happy with that!
