What's your position?
What's the level of OA awareness where you are?
What are your goals for OA Week?

How did you hear of the OA Week site?

Translating 'Set the default to open'

Greetings, all! I have two big questions for the Open Access community:

1) What type font does Open Access use in its logo? If possible, I'd like to match it in some of the fan art I'm making for the big week.

2) How do you translate the seminal phrase 'Set the default to open' in other languages? I'd like to start with Spanish ('Establecer el valor predeterminado a abierto') but I…
