Mark: The thinking here seems right-on, although I always struggle whether to use viral/infection metaphors due to the negative connotations, even when such metaphors are a perfect fit. Reading your snippet, I was immediately thinking of how the "open virus" has spread to larger realms in the "collaborative economy"...maybe there's another point to make about that vector ;) On a related note, I was doing some viral analysis of the #OER community and the math behind it tells us that if one wanted to "infect" the OER community with a really infectious idea, one would only need to get that idea shared by the following short list of 8 folks to get it in front of the most-connected 1,000 members of the OER community. http://www.twitter.com/sheilmcn http://www.twitter.com/psychemedia http://www.twitter.com/GrahamAttwell http://www.twitter.com/loumcgill http://www.twitter.com/bonstewart http://www.twitter.com/patlockley http://www.twitter.com/HallyMk1 http://www.twitter.com/lindsayjordan
