As we were designing this course, we asked a few people to let us know what "open" means to them. Their respnses are copied below. You can also find the same data in a Google Spreadsheet here:  Here's another version of the same spreadsheet that might be easier to read:  With the spreadsheet, you can connect people's answers to their professions.

1. What does "Open" Mean to you?

2. Why do you participate in open culture? Or, why do you think openness is important?

3. If possible, and if you would like, please provide a link to a work, project, or initiative you think exemplifies your definition of "open". You can provide more than one if you wish.
