  1. Vincent and Allen, I loved the discussion on open access and the email's were fantastic. I think the one listener is correct in that you truly do walk the fine line between layman and researcher and some how manage to keep all interested and involved.
  2. Open access debate was great. So important to make all that amazing content available to the people who could really use it but are least likely to afford it...students. Although I do realize that it's difficult because these journals are very expensive to produce so it's not as much of a no-brainer as it appears on the surface. That said, "open" is the future of media. Ad models/sponsorship will need to be embraced strongly.
