[Air-l] Open access publishing (was a modest proposal)

This letter was outstanding! It will not win praise from the publishing
industry that believes that it has a divine right to control publishing
in all of its forms (print,video and audio) but it really is a core
democratic ideal that this nation should embrace to spur further
research and to open up the mysterious world of academia to the masses.
I would rather see the public have more access to this, and discuss some
of this content, than the latest Paris or Brittany escapade. My research
speaks to the importance of open source publishing. Google is doing us a
public service on this issue regardless of how some of us may feel about
their other policies.
