Wilbanks’ talk on ‘Knowledge Interoperability’ from CSE now online

May 12th, 2009 by Kaitlin Thaney

The latest talk from Science Commons John Wilbanks on “Knowledge Interoperability” is now online, made available on “Beyond the Book”, an educational program out of the Copyright Clearance Center. The presentation was given at the annual Council of Science Editors Annual Meeting, held in Pittsburgh from May 1-5.

In Wilbanks’ talk he details the need for an open approach when it comes to knowledge sharing in the digital world, necessary to really see network effects on available information and explosions of innovation. He argues that the ability to create and distribute is now ubiquitous, and that the digital commons presents a different opportunity for sharing, if allowed. Our work at Creative Commons aims to facilitate that sharing ecosystem,  better leverage the power of the network, and enable sharing that’s legally sound, easy and scalable.
