Hi all 

WMUK would like to provide better materials aimed at the general public which explain the benefits of open knowledge. I have already been signposted to some existing resources (provided by other organisations) but if you know of any really good materials on this, please let me know. 

Also, if anyone would like to take on the task of writing a short, simple guide to open knowledge from a Wikimedia perspective, please let me know! This will go on our website but will also be a document that we can email to people as necessary.
