Why does open matter?

The University of New Brunswick invited me to give the Keynote at their inaugural Open Access Week Annual Conference: Bailiwick.  The Conference was organized by the Information Services and Systems at UNBSJ who are developing an Open Access Plan, developing an institutional repository to preserve and manage their research output. I had the good fortune of spending an afternoon with the Library and Information System staff, tour the campus and visit the town. The objective of the talk was to introduce what open means and not only on open data.
