Lee Berger: A lot of my ideas were always pushing edges, pushing boundaries. No one’s ever made a great discovery by surging behind a wave, and I was always pushing boundaries. I also took a stance in the late 1990s about open access to fossils. You’ve got to remember, it’s very important to remember, that I’m almost the first generation of scientists — people my age and just maybe a year older — that were never without a computer. We are the first computer generation. I had one as a child. I’ve always had one. It makes us think differently. We’re almost the Facebook generation of scientists. And in the late 1990s, there were some behavioral abnormalities within paleoanthropology that bothered me a lot, and I was in a very powerful position. A young man, made director and saving one of the most powerful chairs in the science of paleoanthropology, and I had fossils that had been found by other people — albeit in the very distant past– under my control. And in this science, those are resources. I decided to open them up, let everyone look at them. It now is called “open access.” We didn’t have a name for it at that time really. But took a relatively public stance on that, that I was going to let people see these fossils. It was not the way it was done.
