Thanks for the plug Stevan. While we are at it I have been meaning to ask 
you a question. As I understand it your position is that all published 
articles should be immediately available for free. My question is why then 
anyone would subscribe to a journal? I am sure you have an answer but I 
have no idea what it is, as your proposal seems to defy the basic laws of 
economics. Immediate deposit seems to be self defeating. What have I missed?
