CNI Podcast: The Science Commons Project - An Interview with John Wilbanks

This thirty minute podcast features an interview with John Wilbanks, Vice-President of the Science Commons Project. It was recorded at the CNI 2008 Fall Task Force Meeting.

Science Commons, a project of Creative Commons, has three interlocking initiatives designed to accelerate the research cycle. These include making scientific research “re-useful”, enabling “one-click” access to research materials, and integrating fragmented information sources. Together, these intiatives form the building blocks of a new collaborative infrastructure to make scientific discovery easier by design. Wilbanks discusses the copyright and technical challenges of contemplating a true knowledge browser.
