(via Stephen Downes) Impact of Open Source Software on Education, Series Launch is interesting both because of the publishing model and because of the content.
The publishing model is something we might want to consider at LCB. What they've done is recruit authors who are going to publish (via a blog) something between a blog post, interview and an article every other week on a particular topic - in this case Open Source. Each post will have comments, questions, etc. from readers. They have a Wiki (“Impact of Open Source Software on Education” series, visit WikiEducator) that they apparently use/used to get the authors to fill in their information about what they would write.
This sounds like a really good distributed version of a publishing model that is similar to what you would find at many magazines. I'm curious if people have thoughts on whether this model might be an interesting alternative to the LCB Big Question?
