Towards the end of last year I was reading some Casey Bergman about why they left Faculty of 1000. Casey’s post is here: http://caseybergman.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/goodbye-f1000-hello-faculty-of-a-million/. A primary driver here is the lack of open access and I do have some sympathy with this point of view. However, this also reminded me that as a F1000 contributor, I am free to post my evaluations on my site. This is now what I will do here going forwards. I have no other affiliation to F1000 and many of the caveats raised in Casey’s blog post apply to me. I do not evaluate all articles I find appealing – I just don’t have time. I do try to get out those which make me think in a different way or remind me of important concepts that others might also benefit from a reminder about. As with the rest of this blog – we’ll see how this works out.
