Marcus' World: Aaron Swartz's Legacy, and the Continuing Confusion about what Open Access Actually Means

lkfitz's bookmarks 2016-07-11

Summary:

"There's that claim again -- that Swartz and other open access advocates believe that everything ever written should be free at the moment it is written, and that nobody should ever get paid for anything even if all authors die of starvation as a result.

Nope.

That's not what Swartz stood for, and that is not what open access is about."
