How did Peter Suber first become aware of Open Access?

I asked this (according the question of the blogging contest at http://www.openaccessday.org ) and Peter answered by mail:

The short answer is that I started providing OA to my own work, and advocating it for other work, before I knew what “it” was and before I heard about “it” from others.

For details, see my Richard Poynder interview from last year, pp. 23ff.

Unfortunatley we don’t have a collection of Open Access quotations (at Wikiquote I only found http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Nick_Bostrom ) but here is a great quote from Suber himself:

The more knowledge matters, the more OA to that knowledge matters.
