As part of its commitment to openness, the BBC has posted (actually, a few months ago) under a generous-but-not-CClicense edited versions of the interviews it did for it’s TV series, The Virtual Revolution. This admirably includes interviews of those who did not make it into the series. Hence, mine is available.

I was honored a few weeks ago to be the special guest and keynoter of Oklahoma State University’s Research Week. Here’s an interview with OSU Prof. Bill Handy. [LATER that morning: Here’s a page where OSU students are commenting on it.]
[NEXT DAY:] Several open access advocates are annoyed with me because I seem to imply, against my better knowledge, that open access journals are not peer reviewed. I do know better and almost always make that point when talking about open access. More important is the point itself: Many open access journals (e.g., PLOS.org) are indeed peer-reviewed.
I do have to point out for the record, however, that (despite the title of screen of this interview) I am not a professor at Harvard or anywhere. (I’m open to offers though.) I am a senior researcher at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society. That is not a faculty position, and does not carry either the obligations or the prestige of one.
(Also, the overly-attentive reader will have noticed that I have switched from the [ahole] preface to [moi]. I introduced the former this year as part of my resolution to be a bigger ahole about blogging interviews I’ve done. But, I found myself blogging interviews I’ve done with other people under titles such as “[ahole] Interview of Mary Jones,” implying that Mary Jones is the ahole. So, from now on, it’s [moi].”
In the latest Broadband Strategy Week series of video interviews, I talk with Phil Bellario, Director of Scenario Planning for the FCC’s Omnibus Broadband Initiative. We talk about how you plan for an unplannable future, and how much of the future plans rest upon the present.
