yup we are still moving but not sure that makes a movement.

Open source , open data , open educational resources  all part of this
and folks and even corporations get involved for very different
ideological reasons

I think look for parallels in other forms of open practice and I think
open education and open educational resources are pretty much thriving

Know why my organisation is interested - all about opening up access and
improving the quality of opportunities for learning
On a personal note it is about empowering teachers and learners .
Learning is essentially all about sharing knowledge and developing
skills and competences around this
Have a look at what dishwasher repair men now share on youtube . They
are doing OER but would not know term .
