Open access

From MetaFilter:

The MIT faculty unanimously adopted a university-wide Open Access mandate. Open Access got a big boost yesterday because of MIT’s move.

For those of you not in academia/libraries or who are too lazy to click either of the links, this basically means that if you’re on faculty at MIT and you publish something, you grant MIT (among other things) the right to make that work available for free on a website they set up to be a repository for such work.
