Young Genius & Open Access (#DontKnowJack), Part Two

TEDxMidAtlantic 2012 -Jack Andraka

Since part of the conversation with Jack about open access took place within a fast-paced Twitter chat, and part with other people outside of the hashtag, it took some time to paste it all together in sequence. What I ended up with is strict chronological order simply because the conversation was so complicated and interwoven, it was difficult to maintain continuity in any other way. Even if it made part of the conversation more clear, it tended to make the overall conversation more confusing. You have to realize that often these tweets were flying across the wires at the same time, crossing in passing, and that parts of the conversation overlap. As always with Twitter, each communication was limited to 140 characters, meaning that ideas and concepts had to be abbreviated substantially. I hope this works, because Jack made many very important observations illustrating the hidden costs of paywalls.
