I think it is certainly the case that a lot of important information about
scientific advance will be found outside the established academic publishing
world.

When we built our browser over the Resilient-Explicit Computing domain
(rkbexplorer.com) we were keen to include other sources; in particular the
Risks Digest (http://catless.ncl.ac.uk/risks), which is a stunning mailing
list that has been running for about 25 years as a Forum on Risks To The
Public In Computers And Related Systems.
And of course now we have foaf information etc.

Such sources are a rich vein for finding out who are the players in a field,
and when Linked (with a capital T) with all the other "normal" publication
and project stuff, I think gives a view of the more comprehensive world that
we are trying to create.

Cheers
Hugh

PS
Recently we were amused when someone found that we were showing their old
usenet email address as well as the new one (the one with all the !s in it).
By linking through, we were able to find it related to a single article he
had posted in 1987 on the Risks list.
