Notes from the book launch on July 22, 2015
The editors wish to thank the contributors to this collection for their generous
offering of two most precious resources: time and critical thought.
The same thanks are due our reviewers,
who lent invaluable feedback on early drafts.
This collection has passed through many caring and competent hands at the
University of Regina Press, including
Brian Mlazgar, Bruce Walsh, Donna Grant, and Karen Clark.
This book would not have been possible without the Free Knowledge meeting
held in November 2005,
and funded by the University of Regina’s Transdisciplinary Project Fund,
that featured keynote speaker Brewster Kneen and
panelists: the late Ian Black, Doug Bone,
Helen Clarke, Patricia Elliott, Brad Fox, Michael Francis, Peter Garden,
Rod Haugerud, Sally Mahood, Roger Petry, Claire Polster, and Winona Wheeler.
We further acknowledge the encouragement and moral support of the
University of Regina, in particular our home departments, the School of
Journalism and the Department of Computer Science.
Finally, we are eternally grateful to our colleagues, friends,
and families for offering ideas, rallying our spirits,
and helping cheer on this project to completion.
