Open Access Day

Today is Open Access Day.  The worldwide response has been overwhelming, even before today.  One consequence is that OAN won't be able to keep pace with it, even with the major developments, and very likely neither will the four relevant lists at the OAD wiki.  (You can help the cause, however, by editing and enlarging those lists yourself.)

To sip at the firehose of today's news, check this Google Blog search throughout the day (and modify the search to cover languages other than English).

To me, the essence of OA Day is spreading the word about OA.  Blog something if you have a blog.  But blog or no blog, online or off, aim for real impact.  Enlighten one colleague about OA.
