As Chris Kelty, associate professor at the Department of Information Studies at UCLA, explained in a series of videos on the UC's eScholarship site: "Everybody benefits from this really, the faculty benefit from this because their work's more widely available, it might come in for higher citations. The University benefits because the profile of the University is higher and it might send a message to Sacramento about our commitment to research. And the public benefits-whether you're a K-12 teacher, or someone in an emergency room looking for an article, or someone in business trying to get a patent, everyone in the public benefits from wider availability of our research. In addition, Kelty explained, publishers "are quite reconciled to this" after seeing 177 other universities take a similar path.

Geeks, Social Imaginaries, and Recursive Publics — Cultural Anthropology, 3 Feb 2014 [cached]

2. Kelty describes geeks as a 'recursive public'; do you think the formation of recursive public is specific to the digital age? Why or why not?
3. How does Kelty differentiate between the public sphere and a social imaginary?
In the May 2005 issue of Cultural Anthropology, Christopher Kelty examines how a shared social imaginary of the Internet creates and mobilizes "people who write software and deal regularly with the underlying protocols of the Internet (i.e. geeks)" into a recursive public. While geeks are geographically dispersed in locales as far flung as Boston, Berlin, and Bangalore, they are united by a shared concerned over the "technical and legal conditions of possibility for their own association."
With the Internet as their playground, geeks are constantly building and rebuilding the very infrastructure that allows them to associate. Through coding and argumentation-by-technology, where technical objects such as programs and code become forms of speech, they seek to propagate shared values of openness, freedom and technological inevitability in order to maintain their existence, which is contingent upon the possibility of being addressed as a public. Kelty shows how the Internet becomes more than a space where people assemble; it becomes a site of intense political contest.
