Disruptive Scholarship

Friends/

In August 2005, I had the opportunity to deliver a presentation at Digital Libraries à la Carte: Choices for the Future, an international workshop held at Tilburg University, The Netherlands

The PowerPoint presentation titled “Wikis: Disruptive Technologies for Dynamic Possibilities” reviews the general nature and structure of select wikis, the features and functions of popular wiki software engines, and describes the content and use of wikis by select businesses, colleges and universities, and libraries.

The presentation also speculated about the wiki as an environment, framework, and venue for Disruptive Scholarship, my proposed model for alternative scholarly authorship, review, and publishing

In this Era of Open Access, I conclude the presentation with The Bold Question:

"Is Wiki Method/Methodology the Full/True Means Of Achieving/Creating Real Open Access?”

Think About It !
