A Wonderful Presentation: The Gatekeeper is Dead

in #MedEd by

This presentation by Cameron Neylon is about using filters in publication and I came across it via a link posted on Fenner’s blog on PLoS One. I must say that although a lot of what it says does not affect me in any direct manner, I feel this is an exquisite presentation. In fact, this may well be the “ideal” scientific presentation. I love the way in which Neylon puts his points across in this well thought out and well structured work.

It is worth a look-see. Even if you do not consider yourself a science geek, it is worth looking purely because of the visual spectacle that this presentation is:
