It started yesterday with this from me in response to them:
RT @weknowmore free access for all scientific knowledge a good idea? http://ow.ly/olhD [Yes, but it needs a new biz model for SCIENCE.]then they said:
@ToughLoveforX Good point! The current business model of science (publishers charging $40 an article) is really, really old-fashioned (1}then I said:
@ToughLoveforX The peer-reviewing can be done by the community and publication through the university websites for instance. (2)
@ToughLoveforX Publically funded institutions pay their researchers regardless of the amount or dare I say quality of their publications (3)
@weknowmore I think we agree. The problem is a biz model, not outside support. Maybe Read4Free, Pay4Print and personal appearances?then they said:
@weknowmore Re:Biz4Science. Books to make science accessible? Science clickable #newspapers instead of "science" textbooks. lots of $$$?
@ToughLoveforX Great idea! We are your men and one woman if you would like to investigate this idea further. #revolutionizescience
then I said:
@weknowmore Way cool! Try to get in touch with the Oce people. They are just about there in Berlin. the #clickable part to come.then I tweeted:
#Print09, #HP, #Xerox #Oce #InfoPrint: New addressable sustainable market for digital print starts at #revolutionizescience via @weknowmore
I can't wait to see what we going to do in TwitterSchool tomorrow!
