@sleslie thanks for that response. I agree that there probably is never going to be one metaphor… I think one of the strengths of the OER movement is that it is different things to different people, both in terms of release and use. I was hoping to share what metaphors people are using in making the OER argument, and maybe indulge in a little bit of critique.I agree, recognition of how we see ourselves is key, and you win the cake for spotting the subtext! Have a great opened/drumbeat!
