i usually really like first monday, but the new issue leaves an odd taste in my mouth. it appears to be dangerously close to an advertisement for “The Social Life of Information”. not that this is intrinsically bad, “The Social Life of Information” looks like an interesting book – but first monday seems to have fallen short of it’s stated mission to, “..[expand] the frontiers of academic publishing by combining the traditional values of peer review with publication on the World Wide Web.” hi. ho.
