The link below takes you to a video of my talk at the 6th Munin Conference, at which the theme was Enhancing Publications. In the talk, I explore Stuart Kauffman’s concept of the Adjacent Possible and imagine what it might mean in the context of thinking about the future of scientific publication.
A very slightly revised text of this talk will appear in a subsequent post, and a much briefer blog on the topic will also appear in these pages soon.
The Munin Conference is an annual international conference on issues related to open access and publishing, held at the University of Tromsø. (Note that the video of the speaker and the video of the non-slides can be exchanged by clicking on the right side of the screen on “Swap Media Elements.”)
(My talk from the 5th Munin Conference was entitled Open Access: The competitive advantage; the link takes you to the YouTube video.)
