Comment from Antony Williams
Thinker and theoretician on Open Science of a philosophical bent.
As with most people I have met who are involved with Open Science Michael is passionate, opinionated, thoughtful and fearless. I’ve met Michael only on two occasions, one of these where we shared the podium at the Library of Congress. His presentation was reflective in a way that it calmly called us to attention and action around Open Science. He has the ear of the publishers and some of his blog posts have the community listening, wondering, concerned and optimistic all at the same time. It depends on WHO you are in the community! As I am now in publishing this post was particularly interesting. (http://www.altsearchengines.com/2010/01/10/a-talk-with-antony-williams-of-chemspider/)
