Open publication is also a non-British International movement, and one that I support if implemented correctly. As it stands, most information is available to higher education institutes, but they all pay access fees. With the cost of publishing shifting from physical resources to human resources (peer review, editting, input, etc.) I think it is starting to become feasable to implement. There are a few things that most people fail to realize though: 1) Regular people won't be able to understand most of what is published, and it can potentially lead to uninformed blowhards whining about something they no nothing about by simply not correctly understanding the information. 2) Most people won't be able to replicate experiments without the facilities and resources offered by universities and government labs. 1) is the only one that scares me because it's scary how many complete idiots are out there that can round up even dumber idiots to rally around a cause.
