2 kenchadconsulti ng Enabled by technological change, we are beginning to see a series of economic, social and cultural adaptations that make possible a radical transformation of how we make the information environment…. Impact on the economy and culture: The wider context

3 kenchadconsulti ng One of the aspects of this new economy is the rise of a new mode of production -- social production. Enabled by cheap computing and fast pervasive networks people are giving their time individually or in collaboration with others to produce goods for free. The Networked Information Economy

4 kenchadconsulti ng Removing the barriers to production The technology is unleashing a capacity for speaking that before was suppressed by economic constraint. Now people can speak in lots of ways they never before could have, because the economic opportunity was denied to them Mother Jones Magazine (website) Interview with Lawrence Lessig: Stanford Law School Professor, Creative Commons Chair June 29, 2007 http://www.motherjones.com/interview/2007/07/lawrence_lessig.html http://www.motherjones.com/interview/2007/07/lawrence_lessig.html

6 kenchadconsulti ng The rise of the Pro-Am Creativity is not about special people Most creativity is collaborative Create a platform for people to share Big new ideas dont generally come from big organisations. Their culture has an inbuilt tendency to try to re-inforce past success Intelligent closed organisations will move toward being open Complete corruption of the ideas of patent and copyright http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/63

9 kenchadconsulti ng 2.0 is killing our culture? I dont want the crowd to tell me whats worth watching. I want a movie critic to tell me that. I dont want the crowd to tell me where to eat, because I dont trust them to know. Give me the old gatekeepers any day Andrew Keen. The cult of the amateur-- in interview in Wired

10 kenchadconsulti ng A Siren Song? often-anarchic world of the Internet tide of credulity and misinformation" eroding traditional respect for authenticity and expertise in all scholarly, research, and educational endeavors a world in which everyone is an expert in a world devoid of expertise Michael Gorman - June 18th, 2007 - (Web 2.0 Forum) http://blogs.britannica.com/blog/main/2007/06/the-siren-song-of-the-internet-part-i/

11 Impact on Government kenchadconsulti ng

12 Government 2.0? Whitehall has taken a first step towards a Government 2.0 with a report that urges a greater official involvement with the grassroots web Thursday June 14, 2007 Michael Cross. Open the gates of information The Guardian http://politics.guardian.co.uk/whitehall/story/0,,2102100,00.html

13 kenchadconsulti ng Government 2.0?

14 kenchadconsulti ng Government should take on three main challenges: engaging in partnership with user-led online communities ensuring that it fully understands and responds appropriately to changes in the information market; and advising civil servants on how best to participate in new media. Hilary Armstrong (outgoing) Cabinet Minister

15 kenchadconsulti ng Imagine Government 2.0. Wisdom no longer flows from officialdom to the population, but is co-created with citizens. Civil servants contribute openly to Facebook groups on controversies of the day. Government websites have wiki areas where people can exchange tips about filing tax returns or claiming benefits. Databases of restaurant inspections, tide tables and postcodes are available for all to see and re-use in mashups of geography, time or events. Before launching a new online public service, the government checks to see whether a user community is already doing it better. In short, government learns to let go of the web. Thursday June 14, 2007 Michael Cross. Open the gates of information The Guardian http://politics.guardian.co.uk/whitehall/story/0,,2102100,00.html http://politics.guardian.co.uk/whitehall/story/0,,2102100,00.html

16 Lessons for libraries? Wisdom no longer flows from officialdom [libraries] to the population, but is co-created with citizens. Civil servants [Librarians] contribute openly to Facebook groups on controversies of the day. Government [Library] websites have wiki areas where people can exchange tips about filing tax returns or claiming benefits [information about print and electronic content] kenchadconsulti ng

17 The …. challenge is for the government to get used to giving information away freely. Last year the government received £590m in revenue from public- sector information; but the potential public value of making information free could be even more, says the report Thursday June 14, 2007 Michael Cross. Open the gates of information The Guardian http://politics.guardian.co.uk/whitehall/story/0,,2102100,00.html http://politics.guardian.co.uk/whitehall/story/0,,2102100,00.html

18 Lesson for libraries? Give away your metadata freely for re-use? kenchadconsulti ng

19 Where businesses have built on revenue models [by] charging for access to metadata, communities are bypassing them and building their own repositories: FreeDB, Open Street Map, ISBNdb. That means that if you have a pile of metadata you might want to think about how you can give it away rather than how you can keep it locked away. Liberating library metadata Data, Metadata and Content Posted by Rob Styles 3 rd May 2007Rob Styles

20 kenchadconsulti ng Stephen Bury, head of European and American Collections at the British Library in London, has some reservations about contributing to the Open Library project. "In the short term, I don't think we will send them a copy of our catalogue. We only have limited resources and we need them to concentrate their efforts on our own digitisation projects," he says. Mr Bury was not keen on the idea of allowing ordinary people to edit library catalogues themselves. "I think there's a need for balance and some degree of control. You might get people maliciously changing things." A library bigger than any building By Giles Turnbull Story from BBC NEWS: http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/- /1/hi/magazine/6924022.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/- /1/hi/magazine/6924022.stm Published: 2007/07/31 11:52:05 GMT

21 kenchadconsulti ng Impact on biz models

22 kenchadconsulti ng Digital content presents new issues over copyright and intellectual property

23 kenchadconsulti ng Patents and copyrights, ……. have always been aimed at finding a balance - as the Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig puts it - "between rewarding creativity and allowing the borrowing from which new creativity springs". That's why terms of copyright eventually elapse; in the original US Constitution, they elapsed after just 17 years. Under Thomas Jefferson's original standard, it would no longer be illegal to download, for example, Madonna's 1986 album True Blue. Wednesday June 29, 2005

24 kenchadconsulti ng Copyright blocks access to the inputs into information production that are copyrighted.

25 kenchadconsulti ng the primary role of law has been reactive and reactionary. It has functioned as a point of resistance to the emergence of the networked information environment.

26 kenchadconsulti ng The institutions of higher education, which have found themselves under attack for not policing their students use of peer-to-peer networks have been entirely ineffective at presenting their cultural and economic value and the importance of open Internet access to higher education, as compared to the hypothetical losses of Hollywood and the recording industry.

27 kenchadconsulti ng Convinced that changes in the industry and the spread of digital piracy have made it ever more difficult to make money from selling records, the Crimea plan to turn the economics on their head by giving away downloads of their self-financed second album, Secret of the Witching Hour.

28 kenchadconsulti ng Impact of 2.0 on you and your library? Are you being collaborative [with your users--with others?] Do you participate? Do you enable sharing? create a platform for people to share Do you have a big organisation culture? Are you moving to be more open? Are you liberating metadata and content? How open and flexible are your IT systems?

29 kenchadconsulti ng Questions?? Thank You…
