That should read 'weight of your opponent against IT' of course
Thanks Martin - another very handy piece of forward thinking (and doing). Can hear the pain as you describe workload planning at 150% - and many of us would recognise it. But that is surely the tool by which space for open scholarship can be defended - even expanded. I used to have a line drawn from a very partial understanding of martial arts about using the weight of your opponent against you but that's far too negative reference point when talking about an institution I love... The 10% of time for 'citizenship duties' (which is, in my experience, where the against-the-laws-of-physics extra 50% of productive work comes from) isn't going to cut it. Rather we have to find ways of double counting the time and work we contribute to public scholarship (bleeding into research and teaching). But I think that's the point you're making isn't it? I talk a bit about this in relation to public geography / geography in public in a new review article for Geographical Journal. Close to final version on ORO at: http://oro.open.ac.uk/34344/ (and cite you of course...)
