| It seemed barely credible that London's 
| evening paper would succeed as a giveaway. But

| profitability

| OExchange was released with the aim of

,----[ Quote ]
| Recently, I had the pleasure of finally 
| meeting Cameron Neylon, probably the leading - 
| and certainly most articulate - exponent of 
| open science. Talking with him about peer 
| review helped crystallise something that I 
| have been trying to articulate: why peer 
| review should go.
| [...]
| For me what's particularly interesting is the 
| fact that peer review is unnecessary for the 
| same reason that copyright and patents are 
| unnecessary nowadays: because the Internet 
| liberates creativity massively and provides a 
| means for bringing that flood to a wider 
| audience without the need for official 
| gatekeepers to bless and control it.

| Howard Schultz made this announced at Wired's 
| Disruptive by Design conference today. With 
| this, Starbucks finally joins the ranks of 
| neighborhood coffee stores all over the world 
| that have long offered free and easy access to 
| Wi-Fi. By Fall 2010, Starbucks also plans to

Wikipedia to Loosen Controls Tonight

,----[ Quote ]
| Wikipedia will roll out the latest changes to 
| its editing policy later tonight, called 
| Pending Changes. The constant struggle to find 
| a way to limit vandalism without a chilling 
| effect on legitimate editing will take a more 
| permissive turn with the change.
