thats beside the point. Of course this is not about career boosting - its
not a subject that will leave the university untouched. Maybe I am a
little bit sensitive here because I opted out of academics after finishing
my master degree (I really thought there is no perspective in academic
science) , and only after 7 years break started to resume serious
scientific work, trying to organize a bootstrap institute according to
Douglas Engelbarts model.

I hope that a p2p journal does acknowledge that there are research
structures outside universities that have a crucial role. For me there is
a "chinese glass wall" between formalized academic world and
self-determined research. I have no time going through formal procedures
any more and I feel I pay a bitter price for that.
