The Basement Interviews: Peter Suber

Richard Poynder interviews Peter Suber, the de facto leader of the open access movement (or, as I like to express it, the heart of the open access movement).

Among other things, this interview points out that Peter Suber is indeed the writer behind the beautifully crafted Budapest Open Access Initiative, with phrases such as "an old tradition and a new techology have converged to make possible an unprecedented public good". Peter's vision, logical analysis, writing which is both accurate and inspiring, and inclusive nature have no doubt been one of the most important contributions to open access.

Thanks to Stevan Harnad.
