Is there such a thing as sustainable infodiversity?
In: Researching open content in education, 30-31 October 2007, Milton Keynes, UK.
Do we need a kind of sustainable infodiversity in our global knowledge store, equivalent to a sustainable biodiversity in our physical and ecological environment? In 2001, Edward O. Wilson proposed a five plan to counteract the collective ignorance that is contributing to the destruction of our environment:
• survey the world’s biodiversity
• create biological wealth
• promote sustainable development
• save what remains
• restore the wild lands
We could conceive of a parallel plan to foster a sustainable infodiversity in the context of our global store of information and knowledge.
