FASTR re-introduced in the US House and Senate.

"A bipartisan coalition of members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives today introduced the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research (FASTR) Act, a bill to improve public access to federally-funded research. The FASTR Act’s introduction coincides with “Sunshine Week,” a movement to highlight the need for transparency and openness from the federal government...." 

FASTR is the best bill ever introduced in Congress on OA. For background, see my reference page on the bill <bit.ly/hoap-fastr>, which I'll soon update with details on its re-introduction in the current session.

From pneumatic tubes to internet tubes and open access.

Chief Justice John Roberts in his annual report on the state of the US judiciary: 

"[While pneumatic tubes were invented in the 19th century] news of this dawning era was slow to reach the Supreme Court. It was not until 1931 that the Marshal of the Court proposed installing a pneumatic tube system in the Courtroom [for delivering print copies of new opinions to the press]....The Court’s pneumatic age ended in 1971, when Chief Justice Burger authorized the removal of the pneumatic tube system....The Supreme Court is currently developing its own electronic filing system, which may be operational as soon as 2016. Once the system is implemented, all filings at the Court —petitions and responses to petitions, merits briefs, and all other types of motions and applications— will be available to the legal community and the public without cost on the Court’s website."

The ten most-needed molecules for the +Open Source Malaria​ project. They're open to synthesis and criticism :) #malaria #openscience
 
The OSM Christmas Top 10 list. In the grand tradition of making lists towards year's end, here's the Top 10 List of molecules most needed right now. Any better ideas? Please suggest below. If you'd like to make any of these in the lab, and have the molecules tested, you're free to do so and be included on the paper that will come out of that work.
Which molecules to make next in Open Source Malaria Series 4? The full reasoning is below. The executive summary is that OSM needs these ten molecules: OSM Christmas Top Ten. And if you'd like to synthesise them yourself (open source only please), or suggest better ones, you're free to do so.

"Animal Welfare, Science, an Apology, and an Analysis" is a great example of transparency and public engagement in journalism and science. From +Annalee Newitz​ et al. at +io9​ in the wake of controversy over their recent #animalwelfare piece.
On Wednesday, we published an article about animal welfare in research experiments. It was biased, factually incorrect, and should not have appeared on io9 in that form. As io9's editor-in-chief, I'm the one who screwed up, and I'm sorry. Here's how this mess happened, and what we're doing about it.

“I want a poor student to have the same means of indulging learned curiosity, of following rational pursuits, of consulting the same authorities, of fathoming the most intricate inquiry as the richest in the kingdom.” - Antonio Panizzi, Principle Librarian of the +British Museum in 1836. The quote was cited while discussing inspiration for the +Public Library of Science (PLoS), by +Catriona MacCallum at ICSTI Paris, in 2004.

That was already ten years ago, and her point was that #openscience #openaccess and kin are in many regards not new. If our ideas are revolutionary, then our struggles today are only the most recent in a centuries long intellectual revolution.

What does this mean? Play the long game. Understand the history and socioeconomics of access to knowledge and the making of it, and the open ideal vested in science. Make lodestars out of more than technologies, make them from guiding principles and alliances that span generational change. That Open Science is an epic saga could be discouraging or encouraging; take courage.
