As Mike Taylor writes, in academic publishing "we have something like 4000 repositories out there, balkanised by institution, by geographical region, and by subject area." So he and some colleagues have launched the One Repo. Which is a nice idea (links below). But here's the thing: almost nobody needs the whole mess of 4000 repositories and who knows how many journals all in one place. At best, we need a subset. Still - I like that he is doing something about the problem, which is way better than sitting on the sidelines and whingeing. Now, as promised, links:

p.s. yes, the blog really does generally feature pictures of sauropod veterbra.
