DeepDyve thread

I have been following the discussion on this list and at ScholarlyKitchen 
concerning DeepDyve with great interest, as I have been an advisor to DD for 
several years.  I was only peripherally involved with DD's new service 
(jocularly known as "Netflix for research"), but it's clear that some of the 
comments to date have the facts wrong.  The DD CEO, Bill Park, has written a 
blog that addresses some of the controversy, which you can find at 

Note that the $.99 article rental program is but one of several revenue  streams
for DD, whose underlying technology is pattern-recognition software  that was
developed by IT professionals who were building tools for genetic  research. 
This is pretty cool stuff if you are of a geeky persuasion.
