The Open Source Teaching Project represents an attempt to use Web 2.0 technologies and social networking to “create freely interactive media platforms which integrate academic and social content focused on critical thinking, college, and careers.”

Listen here to my interview with OST, where I discuss such diverse topics as “what is the history of technology,” “choices and technology,” “the problems with digital media,” and “doing research as an undergradute.”

It was a pleasure working with the OST. I regularly teach about open source projects, and have written a little about the lessons of open source for historians, but this is my first real open-source project.
