Tim O'Reilly on Nature

"Bravo. Nature continues to be a leader in figuring out how the web can be used to transform science publishing, with experiments ranging from social bookmarking of scholarly articles with Connotea to Declan Butler's use of Google Earth for bird flu tracking, and now, deep thinking about peer review as the very bedrock of the scientific process."

We (Elsevier) and Thomson should learn from Nature in quick execution.
It's not that at Elsevier we don't have ideas, we have plenty of them but apparently we are not very good in experimenting. We need to have more "just do it" attitude.
