“Open” is a kinda buzzword these days – we heard a lot of “open source,” “open data,” “open government,” “open knowledge”… etc. from media, new projects, and the business world. Many were trying to brand themselves with this word and gain people’s attention.
But what exactly is “open”?
As an open culture volunteer, I would like to address what we care about, the issues we are facing, and what we should expect when using the term.
The talk will be in Mandarin and designed for newcomers to the open culture world, but welcome to join the discussion even if you are a contributor for years. Most of the content comes from previous versions.
