Actually, the credit should go to both R. Freitas and Landes.
Robert for insisting on this (perhaps influenced by Eric's
perspective re: open-crit type arguments for knowledge) and
Landes for being willing to accept Robert's requirements
and contribute the on-line editing work required.
Both author and publisher can contribute to the needed changes
in the publishing paradigm.
An "interesting" tidbit that I've picked up in conversations about
this is that technical volumes like Nanosystems and Nanomedicine
are considered "huge" successes if they sell 10,000 copies.
Something to think about when you ask why people don't understand
