Quotes from the science blogosphere

"As Nature's experiment in open peer review showed, and as can be seen from the lack of commenting on papers in Nature and other journals that encourage it, researchers see little to be gained from open discourse before or after publication. Not only are they busy, as the above quotes attest, but there's no credit to be gained, and some risk if one makes an erroneous or critical statement in public"
From a recent editorial at Nature (again, not exactly from the blogosphere)
