Re: I'm thrilled...

Hi Stephen - for you to publish under a PloS model may not make much sense - you have developed a platform from which to present your views, ideas, and theories. However, there are many others who, for various reasons - time being primary, have not adopted the open, transparent process you and I utilize. Many individuals - the ones in the trenches doing the actual work - don't have a podium from which to broadcast their views. So, while a PLoS model might be a step back from what you're doing now, it is a step forward for many others. Personally, I think the big value of the PLoS site is the ability to annotate, in context, the views and opinions of others, rather than simply including them at the end of the document. Like you, I also object to the fee. I would see a PLoS concept in learning and technology to be one of collaboratively taking care of our own community - i.e. that we are all responsible to tend our collective knowledge garden...especially if we want to increase access to others of less favorable economic climates.
