Strong and valid stuff from danah boyd (@zephoria) in "Save Scholarly Ideas, Not the Publishing Industry (a rant)"; all the more so because published under the loose imprimatur of Microsoft Research. Excerpt below. - http://socialmediacollective.org/2011...
"These days, the scholarly publishing industry operates as a gatekeeper, driven more by profits than by the desire to share information as widely as possible. It stopped innovating and started resting on its laurels. And the worst part about it? Scholars have bent over and let that industry continuously violate them and the university libraries that support them." - Seb Schmoller from Bookmarklet
