Aaron Swartz, JSTOR Misfit


Anonymous Anonymous said...

Tom, what 'da 'dems & obama doing about this -- the biggest inequality and injustice that exists in your blessed Amurika today? Will the elitely-sanctioned JSTOR be on any of the 2012 election planks? Or, why doesn't SUPER-ELITE-HARVARD simply buy the thing and open-source it instead of endlessly and ineffectively useless-twit-blather-blogging about it?

And by the way: This is a fundamental matter of fundamental value and vision. No politician within a billion miles is dealing with this.

Ithaka, Portico and JSTOR are, in part, funded by the Library of Congress. How do they get away with charging for information that should be freely availing in the Library of Congress?

A general archive of academic publications could have been organized by a university consortium or nonprofit in concert with Google or Wikipedia - far more cheaply, with more attention to the needs of end users, fair and open access, reasonable micro-pricing if necessary. Instead it reflects an imposition of privatized extortion via artificial scarcity at the very moment universal access was beginning to develop on the Net.
