[open-science] IPCC report

I'll probably try to hack bits of the report today.
The way I see it is something like:
* Crowdcrafting is given 9000 references:
* Each citizen is given a reference. and asked "can you read this"
* they are expected to paste the text into Google or some other search
engine (maybe Microsoft Academic Search)
* they click questions such as "is this paper on a public site?" "is it the
publisher site?" "can you access the full-text?" "if not, how much does it
cost?" "please save the URL"
and repeat. It's up to our app to keep track of the results.
There's slightly more cut and paste than normal, but many citizens should
have high motivation. My guess it will take about 0.5-3 mins. We may need
notes on how to navigate some journals. Their interfaces are awful.
We also need a wiki/mail - e.g. how do we find the cost for Journal X...
I think it could be exciting, rapid and very worthwhile.
