Full cast of PCAST

We've blogged the fact that President Obama named OA supporters Harold Varmus and Eric Lander to co-chair the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), with John Holdren.

Today President Obama named all 20 members of PCAST.  (Thanks to the Chronicle of Higher Education News Blog.)

PS:  I haven't had time to check the OA records of the 17 new names.  If anyone else has the time and makes a notable discovery, please drop me a line.
