The @Guardian has some interesting views on the future of scientific publishing; by @Nature's @digitalsci director @timohannay
The increasing pace of human discovery is a curse – we need to rethink what it means to publish the results of research

"On one hand funders and employers should encourage scientists to issue smaller numbers of more significant research papers. This could be achieved by placing even greater emphasis on the impact of a researcher's very best work and less on their aggregate activity."

I find this idea intriguing, and I actually rather like the model of archiving most results and only writing up the best stuff.  It has the net effect of retaining some form of accountability (and allowing access to negative results, which could be a time saver and allow better meta-analysis) while acknowledging that not every research finding is going to be amazing and worthy of a full paper on its own.  Honestly, I think focusing on best work rather than sum of all work encourages better quality/more creativity and helps even the playing field across the range of human diversity.

in case you ever need to make d3.js visualizations of your markov chains...
Markov chains, named after Andrey Markov, are mathematical systems that hop from one "state" (a situation or set of values) to another. For example, if you made a Markov chain model of a baby's behavior, you might include "playing," "eating", "sleeping," and "crying" as states, which together ...
