Meet the Robin Hood of Science
The tale of how one researcher has made nearly every scientific paper ever published available for free to anyone, anywhere in the world.
ROBERT STEELE: While titillating, this is down in the weeds. The real problem is that the paywalls only contain 1% of all written papers, and nothing from across the rest of the greater world of knowledge. It is also a fact that the new generation is no longer doing large papers, they prefer to publish posts and videos. It is a whole new form of information management, and neither Elsevier (a $3B a year company) or Thompson Reuters (a $12B a year company) seem to be paying attention. Meanwhile the Bloomberg box is collapsing, and no one seems to care that a tax accounting revolution in around the corner that could a) eliminate most taxes in favor of an Automated Payment Transaction (APT) Tax and b) eliminate audits with blockchain ledgers. I have done all I can to suggest needed initiatives, see the graphic and link below.
