Still waiting for mine to arrive, but Geeks Bearing Gifts looks to be absolutely fabulous. Whether you like him or not, Ted Nelson is probably one of the most visionary people of our age. As I’ve written about in a number of places, his work on primedia, transclusion, and reuse generally is the foundation much of my own thinking is built upon. If only learning objects had been built on Ted’s way of thinking instead of object-oriented programming, we might be doing something useful with learning objects even now… /me looks wistfully into the distance… Hopefully it’s not too late for OERs (which are just learning objects with an open license) to learn the lessons of Ted’s visions.
I love that this is published through Lulu (as is the OER Handbook for Educators). Remind me again, who needs the mainstream publishers?
