The Beginning of Direct Online Results Publishing?

The David Ron lab website is the first I've seen to publish data (albeit negative data), helpful hints, and positions on contentious issues directly to the web. Nice job. 10e37 bayblab points. Of course the idea was first proposed by us bayblabbers, who talk a lot of smack but never do anything about it.... Interestingly, the one piece of data posted so far was a mini-paper in support of the notion that nuclear translation is bullshit. Still, this is extremely cool and demonstrates the potential power of direct online results publishing.

Interestingly that data was posted 3 years ago, so obviously not an active forum.....Good effort, although I'll have to take back those bayblab points.

The most recent data on that forum is May 2005. So not that dead. I still think it's 10e19 bayblab points. All we need now is for every lab to do this and for Google to make an amalgamator like google news.

Amalgamator yes, but !@#$%^ google. Some nobody like us should just start a central site linking together anybody who's doing this kind of stuff...
