    Thanks for the Nature’s faux pen link. Am going to email this to select colleagues at the university library system where I work. Earlier this week I re-posted (at our library blog) a rather glowing news item about Nature’s “partial open access”. This faux pen article really gave me pause.
    Ah, the older I get I am turning more and more into a socialist. It seems we are only shooting ourselves in the foot, so to speak, by collectively accepting a high price on information, including scientific information.
