I believe that science could benefit a lot if scientists would compete less and cooperate more. I think that we need a publication system that encourages discussion between authors and readers. We also need a system that facilitates cooperative writing of texts that keep evolving. The current publication system does not take full advantage of the technological possibilities of social interaction that have proven so efficient in the social media, wikipedia, wikibooks, and the open software development tools.

I welcome the new social scientific platforms as a first step in the direction of better communication and cooperation in the scientific community. See also the comment by Richard Price: "The Future of Science".
