April 2007[edit]

This page covers the Access to Knowledge movement, a global social movement pressing to increase access to knowledge, primarily via changes in intellectual property law, telecom law, and other access infrastructures. Information on individual organizations seeking to increase access to knowledge from their particular programs should go on those organizations' pages.

Unfortunately, none of what I added to this page is avalable through our organization's bureaucratically correct but extremely limited page. Hence, my addition of one paragraph to your more general page. Although it did not detract from anything, I see that you have deleted everything that I added for which I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation.

Presumably, you feel that you own this page. Fine - you can have it. I'll put my stuff elsewhere and delete all links to this page from those that I contributed.Albert Simard 14:54, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

It seems like "Access to Knowledge" may be too broad for both subject areas. If you wanted to move this page to "Access to Knowledge Movement," I wouldn't object. But then I would also suggest that your text go onto a page with a more specific title. HarcourtArms

OK, I moved it. HarcourtArms

And I will recreate my work under a new name. BTW - What ever happened to social networking?Albert Simard 17:57, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Organizations active in the A2K movement[edit]

After serious consideration, I have boldly moved this list to the Talk page under Wikipedia guidelines Wikipedia:External links and Wikipedia:Lists. We may now be able to remove the (external links) tag from the article. -- Writtenonsand 12:18, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Organizations active in the A2K movement

NPOV?[edit]

Seems a little biased to me.

"The central concern is the future of the so called information society. Will the rules governing information and communication technologies, whether expressed in code, law or social practice, prioritise openness, freedom and access? Or will intellectual property law be used to create a new information feudalism in which a few powerful multinational corporations control mutually incompatible proprietary systems?" —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aristotle1990 (talkcontribs) 20:02, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Street Gang A2K[edit]

I came here looking for information pertaining to the A2K gang. I know that they are prevailant in the San Antonio area. I think there should be a disambiguation so the link leads to both pages (if an A2K(gang) page doesn't exist one should probably be written up). -Knowl -<(I am questing for Knowledge!)
