Wikipedia founder to help in government's research scheme | Science | The Guardian

The UK government (not my favourite government on the whole) is making great strides towards openness, bringing Jimmy Wales in to help make all academic and other public-funded research openly available and, interestingly, socially enabled. This should help to ensure the demise of the increasingly ludicrous closed model of academic publication. A great initiative, with a target of opening everything up within two years. It is hard to see how the big academic publishers will survive this assault. Good.
