Hi all,

In one of our national newspapers Volkskrant of today I read an article on
the new company United Academics, who want to build communities of
scientists with their own lit databases and new models of publication. It
has to grow into a facebook for scientists.
There is at least one comparable company ReserchGate, as far as I know
Our ideas (@ccess) of building communities are different as we don't focus
on scientists only. But we do want to build communities, implement new
publishing systems, provide platforms for interaction. provide access to as
much information as possible. For all this we have the poassible
collaboration in the Github Science projectand the new Bibsoup system,  big
When entrepreneurs are seeing possibilities, I am the more convinced that
we have something going that can become very successful indeed
