Belated idiosyncratic post on launch of Research Ideas and Outcomes, new open access mega journal for entire research cycle http://gondwanaland.com/mlog/2015/12/26/riojournal/
I've previously cheered Daniel Mietchen's efforts to promote open access research proposals. Mietchen, with fellow researcher/OA activist Ross Mounce and ecologist/academic publisher Lyubomir Penev have recently launched Research Ideas and Outcomes (I sometimes misremember the name; ...

I really like +Stephen Paul Weber 's https://www.crowdsupply.com/singpolyma/big-buck-bunny-board-book : extremely humble short-term, but in pursuit of a non-humble long-term goal...a free culture.

Read recent update "Creative Freedom for Children Who Become Adults" https://www.crowdsupply.com/singpolyma/big-buck-bunny-board-book/updates/1815 and buy hardcopies for children you know.

I also have a rant https://d.wifo.org/t/free-myths-for-the-next-generations/126 that uses Weber's initiative as an example of just what to do.

Go back him already https://www.crowdsupply.com/singpolyma/big-buck-bunny-board-book  !!! :)
