Introduction and Overview[edit]

I quite liked the introduction and it entices me to want to read more. Probably most of all because I am interested in peer developed initiatives like Wikiversity and other things. This intro will be a useful resource for me to use when I facilitate groups of people into thinking about Open Educational Resources - Thanks. I did think though, that the windsurfing story was a bit weak. It was enjoyable to read, and illustrated the point just enough, but at the same time it seemed fickle or not serious enough - I wish another story was chosen, but hey.. I'm tolerant enough to get to the next chapter... --Leighblackall 05:23, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
