"Everyone blames everyone else. Some suffer, some get super-rich.
Everyone is losing out. It must change. Completely. If not from within,
then from without."
"The current technology of the mainstream publishing industry is just
awful. Really awful. It’s often built by outsourcing parts to people and
companies who do not care how the result is used. The methods used -
awful PDF and really awful HTML - are for the publisher’s convenience,
not for the reader."
Hear hear. The commercial scholarly publication system is a barrier to
innovation that seeks to maximise their own influence and revenue rather
than provide maximum benefit to the users. Via glyn moody.
