Given this group's open access orientation, I think it's quite relevant to revisit how we (as a loose-tie community) might want to regroup in nonprofit open source forum.

I am personally shifting all my work to Zotero and other open reference managers; I think it may have been mistake to host this kind of group with a for-profit startup in the first place. But I'm curious to know what other OER folks think!

For people interested, I've blogged an attempt to visualise openness based on the the 4 principles of Access, Software, Format and Licensing. Would appreciate any feedback

Everyone, thanks for making this group a success so far. Would love to see some newer articles in this group, especially more open access articles.

I've noticed that practically all of the papers associated with this group treat "meta-issues" of OER -- is this the appropriate place to offer such resources concretely, for test-runs & potential feedback? If not, then where?
Chris Blow
Chris Blow Hello Margit,

There are a number of repositories of OER content that might be more appropriate if you are actually interested in putting OERs into use, such as http://www.oercommons.org

However, this OER group has an organic, anything-goes style — which I think is appropriate for OER hackers and theorists!
