    Nice, but long article on academics trying to resist "El Savior" (pun intended). I don't think that they will succeed!

    This change will come through public interest litigation. If you or I, go to the courts and get them to issue an injunction on all publicly funded research from being published in "non open access" journals, this fight will get very interesting.

    Since Sadhus are not allowed to go to the courts (except the one in Kailash), I am hoping that it will be you, rather than me though...
