"In the development of the information society, handling of information is the crucial question. egoism or altruism can be deducted by the way we share or do not share. Do we share information, knowledge, teaching and learning tools, code, algorithms, data freely or do we control them, hide them, hoard them, box them in and pass them only to others if we receive monetary compensation?
Open Access, Open Educational Resources, Free Software, Open Data – these movements could shape the information society or will they succumb to multi-national stake-holder companies which control and monetarize information?"
