Re: publishing on the WEB?

There is something people do not seem to be catching onto here. In other
fields of science (physics, robotics, astronomy) technical publishing on the
Web and so on is no longer being peer reviewed. Scientists are finding that
other scientists are quite capable of judging the contents of a paper all by
their little lonesomes, without other scientists deciding what they get to
see. Does bad science get published? Sure. No system perfect, and the time
wasted reading bad papers is compensated for by not have to review papers
before publication.
