Hi Sarven

As you know, the community produces the semantic web dogfood site that contains Linked Data about the papers published by the community's conferences and workshops. This refers to that.

I thought my response and Carsten's  addressed your email with respect to LISC. There was also a very long thread appearing afterwards talking about the various aspects to this around publication formats. I think you have to acknowledge that there are disagreements with your position with respect to technology for publication.

I don't know why your pessimistic - we are publishing rdf data about our publications , more authors are providing links to code and data sources, we have open access forums for our papers. Journals like SWJ are experimenting with new forms of peer review.

The linked data community is full of experiments and great stuff to do better science.
