Question: does the open research world need a single access point?
You do open research. You write about it in your blog. Feedback comes in the form of blog comments. Great, but undoubtedly others can learn from the discussion – if they can find it. Do people find it?
If a blogger has research questions and you have the answers, consider creating an article on the Nodalpoint open research discussion wiki page. I’m not suggesting that this become the place to go for answers (although that would be nice), but it’s a place.
