My former office-mate Duncan Hull (EBI), and current Ondex colleagues Robert Stevens (Manchester) and Phil Lord (Newcastle), are contributing to a new book all about ontologies that is being written, reviewed and edited through a standard Wordpress blog.
The advantages of scientific publishing in this way are many and obvious. Most importantly, it is fast, authors retain control of manuscripts, peer review is out in the open, and (my favourite) you needn't post the entire content to the blog but can keep it on your own blog and bring in the ad revenue. Carry on like this and we're in real danger of developing an economy around the knowledge exchange that is scientific research, rather than persisting with this absurd and unsustainable lab-coated philanthropy.
This very strongly relates to the initial idea around which the Hartlibian Group was formed and I hope it grows into something that is widely accepted and indexed by the major scholarly search engines.
