Wow, is that ever the opposite of what I said, and meant, which was about getting serious, 
not getting rich! 

$500 per year or $20 per issue to read what one individual has to say about open access...

Let’s hope that the emerging US Public Access program will be “tracked” — and its policy shaped — by 
knowledgeable representatives of the research community, motivated to facilitate and accelerate OA growth, 
rather than by “policy consultants” motivated to constrain and retard it.
