I just posted about a new article by Rick Anderson on special collections for libraries, which he would like to emphasize over readily available content.  http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2013/08/07/for-libraries-the-future-is-a-foreign-country/

I just posted an essay on open access and professional societies, which was inspired by a comment by the head of SPARC, Heather Joseph.  The link is here:  http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2013/08/01/open-access-and-professional-societies/

I just posted a piece on what happens when the marginal cost of content is no longer zero.  This touches on the issue of Net Neutrality and would have an impact on assumptions concerning open access.

BTW, anyone else notice that the interfaces for all Google services are getting harder to figure out and more complicated?  Took me forever to post this.  They should buy Yahoo! and bring back Marissa Mayer.

The fate of Springer has been resolved:  it has been acquired by yet another private equity firm.  Here is the Reuters press release:  http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/06/19/us-springerscience-sale-idUSBRE95G17120130619.  I have been reading around about this all morning.  The most interesting tidbit (other than the stratospheric valuation) is that growth is anticipated in developing countries and open access.

I just published a blog post on "the personality of a publisher."  I had been working on this for a while when the topic came up in this community.  The community discussion helped me to formulate my thinking.  I acknowledge William Gunn for his input.  http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2013/06/03/the-personality-of-a-publisher/

There was a huge and unexplained management change at PLOS.  Anyone know what happened?  http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2013/05/13/plos-stakeholders-and-shareholders/

I just reposted an essay, "Open Access 2.0," which was not showing up in search engine results:  http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2013/02/20/open-access-2-0-access-to-scholarly-publications-moves-to-a-new-phase/.  I wrote this several years ago and would update it if time permitted.  For reasons that are unclear to me, the library site where it was hosted was not being indexed by Google except for the title, or so people have told me offline.
