George Siemens discovers the Public Library of Science (PLoS) and suggests that there should be "a similar model adopted for research in the learning and technology space." I've thought about this for some time. Except... what is it about the journal model (especially one where authors pay fees) that is superior to what I'm doing now? And if I were to start a journal, what better route than to simply set up a website with the Open Journal Systems software? I'm not trying to rain on the parade. But - I like just posting articles and letting the world decide whether it likes them, wants to reprint them, whatever. Anything over and above that strikes me as, well, paperwork.
