Replying to @ahacker

I can see that. But even the e-journal implies a print-analog telos. I’d like more focus on process, as in a blog platform. #btpdf2

Fascinating proposal for a pure XML-first workflow: only release the XML; let the reader provide their own preferred format layer. #btpdf2

Not exactly. @scholarpedia tops up Wikipedia with peer review. What I want is a merger of GitHub and a scholarly blog. #btpdf2

That’s quite an interesting model. I was thinking of something slightly different, but I’m glad to know about it!
