Economies of the Commons 2: Video from Amsterdam on Revenue Models (and why this matters to biodiversity) (via )
This conference has a lot of significance for those working in this space of digital resources in any field, but especially those that rely on funding for sustainability. These are merely my opinions drawn from some of our experiences working with digital resources directed at cultural heritage and botanical biodiversity. None of us have any doubt as to the value of these materials, but without clear means of economic sustainability and clear measures of success (as in what does usage/market look like) then these things are destined to fail. I am just thrilled to see a conference that openly attempts to have this conversation.
