Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography
Long time web users from the academic and publishing end of the spectrum will need no introduction to Charles W Bailey's ongoing project, the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography.
1966 - to present : from e-mail to Creative Commons - to blog
Running since 1996 - pause to take that in - first by email - then by PDF, and more recently by custom search, it now offers everything under the Creative Commons imprimatur.
It has also introduced a blog which gives people a regular update to the sources that are being logged for the main annual edition.
Be advised there is no casual chat here - actually there is no chat at all - just the rolling update of articles and sources as they come to hand.
The RSS feed is plainly on view - shortcut here - so even I could figure out this was a brilliant way of keeping up with key trends and articles, especially those speaking to issues like open archive repositories, et al .
Personal Top 100
In short, though his site may never set the Webby judges on fire, Charles W. Bailey is definitely a candidate in my personal top 100 people who, in their determination to make a contribution, make the web fit for purpose.
