Varmus a "Top Public Intellectual"

The current issue of Foreign Policy contains a list of The Top 100 Public Intellectuals as chosen by the magazine. (Thanks to Open Left.)

Included in the list is Harold Varmus, who serves as chairman of the board of the OA journal publisher Public Library of Science.

The magazine is collecting votes from readers for a Top 20 list, selected from among the Top 100 and write-ins. Voting closes May 15.

Comment. I didn't immediately notice any other OA connections among the Top 100 list (other than Jeffrey Sachs, who recently helped launch an OA student journal). But there may have been others whose names I didn't recognize.
