For those who may have missed it...David Wiley has written a blog post 
redefining the 'open' in open content.


David argues against non-commericial licences and share alike licences. 
He also references the ALMS Framework 
<http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/cdm/ref/collection/IR/id/774> and talks 
about the need to avoid poor technical choices (locking in to expensive 
or difficult to use tools, not enabling content to be easily remixed). 
Much of this ties in with the recent discussion had on this list around 
editor tools for building and remixing OERs 

Any thoughts?
