Nature Magazine launches open collaborative space for undergrads

David Weinberger sez, "Nature Magazine, which should be the stodgiest of the stodgiest, continues to show an admirable willingness to experiment (stopping short of doing the full open access Monty). It's now created Scitable, 'a collaborative learning space for science undergraduates.' It's got articles, online class tools, teacher collaborative tools, student collaborative tools, discussion areas…

This initial implementation focuses on genetics, although Nature is planning on expanding the topics.

On top of all that, it's great to contemplate how blasé we've become about the primordial value of collaborative tools. Collaboration is the new greed."
