Open access

It seems that Open Access is gaining its momentum more and more and I think it is right so. After all we are all paying taxes and should have access to research results. Here is the BBC news about this link.

Openness is also gaining its momentum in the field of software, where Open Source has made tremendous progress in last, say 5, years. It seems that we will soon have open and well documentet formats for our files. This is very important since closed formats can be an evil after few years when nonone has access to old versions of the program. Link to one of many Slahdot news.
