Openness and Corporate Paywalls


[George posted a quick note](http://www.elearnspace.org/blog/2010/08/29/openness-but-only-if-its-closed/) about how an interview he gave for an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education was published. Behind a paywall. The Chronicle took an interview, freely given by everyone (except, I assume, for the paid interviewer and editor?), on the topic of openness in education, and decided to lock it behind a mechanism constructed to block access to it.

I'm not going to link to The Chronicle article (or, more accurately, anything on The Chronicle, ever), so here's a screenshot of the short snippet of the article that they publish "openly" - I love how they cut it off in mid-sentence... Taking the **what**? I must know! Here's my credit card number! Please! Take it!
