Open - How we'll work, live and learn in the future

We have become smarter learners and learning has opened up. Why? According to David,
"Because information flows faster and more freely than ever, and because we are better connected than ever, the barriers to learning are being dismantled. We share what we learn instantly and generally without restrictions. How we learn and whom we learn from has been transformed. Our reliance upon anointed experts and authority figures has diminished, while our capacity to learn from each other has spiralled"
Open, Introduction.

What makes a global corporation give away its prized intellectual property? Why are Ivy League universities allowing anyone to take their courses for free? What drives a farmer in rural Africa to share his secrets with his competitors?
A collection of hactivists, hobbyists, forum-users and maverick leaders are leading a quiet but unstoppable revolution. They are sharing everything they know, and turning knowledge into action in ways that were unimaginable even a decade ago. Driven by technology, and shaped by common values, going ‘open’ has transformed the way we live.
Going open is also confronting our formal institutions by turning conventional wisdom on its head. Give away what you used to sell. Work where and when you choose to. Take kids out of school, so they can learn. Faced with an irreversible shift in our social lives, it’s not so much a question of if our workplaces, schools and colleges go open, butwhen.
Packed with illustration and advice, this entertaining read by learning futurist, David Price, argues that ‘open’ is not only affecting how we are choosing to live, but that it’s going to be the difference between success and failure in the future.
