Thanks for this important piece of info. Too much of a coincidence, the recently announced full-time, thus full-funded entry of Google into Semantic Web technologies and now this. 


By the way Larry Page of Google is now also co-funder of Planetary Resources, to do "asteroid mining". Anyone seen the irony of the company doing data mining now also getting into the act of asteroid mining?

Open Science for the 21st Century: Declaration of All European Academies
At its 13th General Assembly, ALLEA, the umbrella organization 
of European Academies of Science, adopted a joint declaration on Open 
Science for the 21st Century.
Because of exactly such initiatives it is imperative that the academia itself be the primary motor behind development of scholarly metrics.
