Jennifer Papin-RamcharanOn this show I've spoken to editors from the Public Library of Science - Mark Patterson and Virginia Barbour - and to the Executive Director of Science Commons, John Wilbanks. They are all involved with the production and distribution portion of the Open Acces equation. What happens on the other side? How does Open Access affect an institution in the developing world, and does the model really have the promised benefits?

Are the problems stated by the Open Access movement "real", or just marketing?

To answer these questions, and to get a clear perspective from the end-user-side of Open Access, I spoke with Jennifer Papin-Ramcharan. Jennifer is the Engineering and Physical Sciences Librarian at the University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago. Jennifer agreed to talk to me about her experiences with Open Access.

After I spoke with Wayan Vota, currently Director of IESC-GeekCorps, about the work of Geekcorps in Mali. I wanted to get some more insights into why Geekcorps came into existence, from the person who founded the organization. But more importantly, I wanted to find out what has been learned from the collaborative model, global volunteerism, and the experiences working in Africa towards a better
society.

Ethan talked to me for almost 90 minutes, about his GeekCorps experiences, his work with the Berkman Center, and his ongoing work as a global activist. This is the abbreviated 45 minute version of the interview. The longer version is available by request.

Melissa HagemannMelissa Hagemann, my guest today on Open Views, is the program manager for the Information Program at the OSI. Melissa was profiled as a Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Innovator in December 2006 for her work promoting and facilitating Open Access.

Melissa could well be given the credit for the sucess of the Open Access movement. Considering the initiative is just over 5 years old, it's impressive that organizations as large as the National Institutes of Health have mandated are considering instituting that all the reseach they fund be released under an Open Access model and deposited into PubMed Central, the online digital library maintained by the NIH. Essentially this makes all NIH funded peer-reviewed articles completely freely available to anyone who wants it.

Michel Bauwens This week's guest on Open Views is Michel Bauwens , founder of the Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives at P2PFoundation.net.

Peer-to-Peer (or P2P) is most often thought of in terms of the file-sharing computer networks that have been vilified by the recording and movie industry associations, for allegedly permitting (if not encouraging) rampant digital content "piracy". But Michel takes the concept of peer networks, to the realm of society. We're creating a new world, where peer production is taking on traditional societal models. The most obvious example is Wikipedia - an encyclopedia designed to be created by collaborators, and gaining sufficient momentum (and arguable credibility) to take on the likes of
Brittanica. The success of the Wikipedia project could be attributed to peer production - basically global collaboration amongst a like-minded group.

Yesterday on "In Depth With Erika Richards", we only skimmed the surface of a topic that is both emotional and complex.  In the studio today, we invited three guests to discuss the issue of CAFOs, or concentrated animal feeding operations, and their impact on both the environment and economy locally and statewide.  The four of us tiptoed around an issue that everyone seems to have an opinion about. No...not just an opinion...but a passionate opinion that defines quality of life on all levels.

My guests included:

   - Ron Sieren, a local small hog farmer and outside salesman for Reiff Grain and Feed;

   - Jim Flinspach, a grain farmer and president of the Jefferson County Farm Bureau; and

   - Jim Rubis, President of Jefferson County Farmers and Neighbors, an organization founded to run interference on the proliferation of large corporate hog operations in the county and state.

On Friday April 13th, guest host Clyde Cleveland interviewed Congressman Ron Paul of Texas (R) on Planet Erstwild.  Paul is running for president.  Clyde Cleveland ran for governor of Iowa as the Libertarian Party candidate in 2002. Reason Magazine interviewed Paul about his presidential bid earlier this year. Asked what issues he would emphasize, Paul responded:

"Everything I’ve talked about for twenty years! I think the biggest thing for Republican primary voters is that most Republicans are turned off right now. They’ve had a beating and are reassessing their values. They have to decide what they believe in. The Republican Party has become about big government conservatism, and Republicans need to hear the message they used to hear: that conservatives are supposed to be for small government."

Vegetable Oil Powered Bus - Solar Electricity

BioTour is a journey that aims to enliven the sustainable energy movement, while exploring the depths of America—the people, land, and culture.

BioTour educates about global warming, peak oil and sustainable energy, bringing people together for discussion, exploration and celebration. The BioTour project demonstrates a different way of living and conceiving of energy, one in which human civilization exists in balance with the natural world.

Co-directors Ethan Burke and Alan Palm purchased the BioBus in August of 2006 and were inspired to expand BioTour into a year-round full-time project traveling to all 48 of the continental United States. BioTour now has a new partner, co-director and documentarian, Cat Hainfeld, who specializes in web design, videography, and photography. Brian Burke has joined to round out the crew, and BioTour is ready to kick off the Spring 2007 Tour in April.

Today's show focuses on the Congressional testimony of General David PetraeusGeneral David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker regarding progress-or lack thereof--in Iraq.

Also discussed is a BBC/ABC survey of Iraqi sentiment towards the U.S. surge.

To reference Ari Berman's blog today from the Nation, click on: "Questioning Petraeus' Crediblity".

Titles of two BBC articles are a study in contrasts:

"U.S. Surge has Failed"

"U.S. Surge Plan in Iraq 'Working'"

The first, a survey of 2000 Iraqis in 450 neighborhoods from all 18 provinces, shows 70% expressing that security has deteriorated in the area of the surge, that conditions are worse for politcal dialogue, reconstruction and economic development. Only 29% think things will get better in the next year (compared to 64% two years ago). And forbodingly, nearly 60% of Iraqis see attacks on US-led forces as justified. (93% of Sunnis vs 50% of Shia.)

The second is the more upbeat assessment of General Petraeus. He informed Congress U.S. military objectives were "largely being met". Ambassador Crocker said he believed it was possible for the US to see its goals achieved in Iraq, that security was attainable, but it would not be achieved quickly,

Craig Jessop,
Music Director, Mormon Tabernacle Choir

When Jessop became music director of the Choir in October 1999, he stepped into a position tailor-made for him. Not only had he served as the Choir's associate director from 1995 to 1999, he had also been a member of the Choir for four years during college. Growing up, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was his musical inspiration.

Under his leadership, the Choir has continued to live up to its tradition of excellence and has explored new territory in the musical and performance realms. As the music director of not only the Choir, but also the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Temple Square Chorale,

Jessop draws on the strengths of these three entities and combines them as appropriate to enhance the level of musical excellence in performance.

Matt Ahearn of Obvious WorldTonight’s show is presented fully in the spirit of creative commons and open source programming...finally. It’s been a year since KRUU opened its doors and raised its tower-of-power (happy 1 year anniversary
everybody!) and I began broadcasting on a radio station again (thank you, FCC).

As a musician who writes and plays his own tracks, the concept of having my music available for free just didn’t make sense. Open Source? Creative Commons? Hmmm..Sounded like Latin to me. No comprende amigo.

But the awesomeness has finally taken hold. Things have clicked. The pieces have come together. Now I get it.

It is a pleasure to finally have come around to understanding that we might be at a point in the evolution of humankind where giving does in fact equate to getting when all is said and done. Tonight’s show will therefore be music sourced from a creative commons/open source/listen-like-it-buy-it-sometime-if-you-can kinda thing… which means that for three hours you’ll be listening to the sounds and energy of two net-labels, indigo*magenta and the Broque label.

Walter Frederick ("Fritz") Mondale was born in Ceylon, Minnesota on Jan. 5, 1928, the son of Theodore Sigvaard Mondale and Claribel Cowan Mondale. He spent his boyhood in the small towns of southern Minnesota, where he attended public schools. After he helped manage Hubert H. Humphrey's first successful U.S. Senate campaign in 1948, he earned his B.A. in political science from the University of Minnesota in 1951. After completing service as a corporal in the U.S. Army, Mondale received his LL.B (cum laude) from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1956, having served on the law review and as a law clerk in the Minnesota Supreme Court.

After a year of playing my own original, fresh and interesting music for the listeners of KRUU FM 100.1 and KRUUFM.COM, I have never once been a disc-jockey who introduced each piece and discussed where or how the music was inspired and created. I would simply weave together 3 hours of totally original journey music and put it out there for you to enjoy, daring you to take from it what you could...

Until now.

Tonite I will be selecting and discussing music I composed between May and October of 2006. During the broadcast I will be playing various selections and discussing (sometimes at length) such details as: the historical significance of each piece, the other artists involved in collaborative efforts, and the move of my old record label freakie people records [now put to rest] towards becoming a net-label focused on creative commons compositions.

[the new net-label as of january 1, 2008 is called BEAUTIFUL ETERNAL]

If you're a fan of the music I've composed and have ever wanted to know more about the music or the artist, this is your chance.

The pieces grew from a deep desire to meld together the forms of hip hop with other genres, and then to just explode with odes to great new age psychedelic tribal gatherings organized by little elves in the thick mysterious forest.

Rudy Guiliani

This week on Speaking Freely, host Dennis Raimondi has a short interview with Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giulliani. Giulliani, the former mayor of New York City, who was traveling through Iowa, is the Republican national frontrunner, though he is presently fourth in the polls in Iowa.

A lawyer, businessman, and politican from the state of New York, Giuliani served in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, eventually becoming U.S. Attorney.

Giuliani later served two terms as as Mayor of New York (1994–2001). Giuliani gained international attention during and after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. In 2001, Time magazine named him "Person of the Year" and he was knighted by Quenn Elizabeth II.

This week on Speaking Freely, host Dennis Raimondi has an interview with former Ambassador Joe Wilson, who came into KRUU-FM studios.
Former Ambassador Joe Wilson

Wilson was in town stumping for Hillary Clinton. Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, is the CIA covert operative allegedly outed by administration officials in retaliation for Wilson's Op-ed piece in the NY Times. Wilson's personal and direct challenge caused the President to withdraw claims Bush made in his 2003 State of the Union address that Saddam Hussein was seeking yellowcake uranium for nuclear weapons, the White House's central justification for invading Iraq.

Plame has just released a book, "Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House," about her experiences which led to Dick Cheney's chief of staff Scooter Libby being convicted of perjury. Libby's sentence was commuted by President Bush this past July. 'Fair
Game' was the term the president's then-chief strategist, Karl Rove, used regarding the vicious smear campaign unleashed against Plame and Wilson, in hopes of softening the serious blow to White House credibility.

When Huston Diehl began teaching a fourth-grade class in a "Negro" elementary school in rural Louisa County, Virginia, the school's white superintendent assured her that he didn't expect her to teach "those children" anything.

She soon discovered how these low expectations, widely shared by the white community, impeded her students' ability to learn."

Womankind
