OER was a frequent topic of discussion at our tech summit Friday. There are still people who don’t know about it — bringing to mind my analogy of OER to bicycles.

Ironically on local radio they declared that construction would be ramped back for the holiday weekend. They must have all been trying to get it done by noon or something because there was extra construction all along my route with significant backups, and backups where people had to enter the flow of traffic.
