Free “Free the Facts!” – Dave Gray on the need for open access to scientific journals

Free the Facts!

Gist: critical thinking needs access to good factual information, information that has itself been derived through a process of (relatively, at least) good CT.  We have been accumulating a very large amount of such factual information (i.e., scientific knowledge).  This is mostly publicly-funded.  People should have access to that information, but it is hidden behind “toll booths” of journal fees. 

Interesting use of handwriting and drawing in a PowerPoint-type format.
