Gigi Sohn on the information commons

Gigi Sohn, The Information Commons and the Future of Innovation, Scholarship, and Creativity, a multimedia PPT presentation for Educause, February 14, 2007.

Unfortunately I couldn't see it because Educause funnels it through HorizonWimba's Live Classrooom software instead of just putting open-format files online.  I tried to jump through the Live-Classroom hoops but I couldn't turn off all the pop-up blockers installed on my computer.  I especially regret this because Gigi is a friend and colleague:  she's the co-founder and President of Public Knowledge, where I'm the OA Project Director.

Update. Here are Gigi's PPT slides without the audio or video (thanks to William Walsh).
