- All things open
- Description: Things open abound. Open source software. Open access publishing. The open archives initiative. OpenURL. Some of these things are fundamental to the inner workings of the Internet. Others are a natural consequence of it. Some groups of people believe in things open with an almost religious fervor. At the other end of the spectrum are some people who see the same things as a drain on intellectual property. The key to progress lies in a middle ground.
