  • Most publications are atomic PDFs
  • Open Access simply removes barriers to accessing these closed objects
  • Data linking
  • My Elsevier Challenge entry (http://iphylo.org/~rpage/challenge/ )
  • All the same thing
  • Data citation with PageRank scores
  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/bastique/639784702/ by bastique

  • Afrotheria
  • EOL is like Wikipedia, but not. This difference may prove it’s downfall.
  • For the species in Wikipedia I asked what web site comes top of the Google search for that name. Wikipedia dominates the search ranking. There really is only one game in town.
  • If Wikipedia is the only game in town for making basic scientific knowledge broadly available, how do scientists engage with it?
