Sharing data and results with EditGrid could be a biologists dream but will they ever want to share data in the same way as other researchers (e.g. economists or computer geeks)? There is no doubt that sharing scientific data would accelerate the pace of research especially in the slow moving fields like taxonomy and systematics. It is also important to put information into the public domain especially as most of the grants we are funded with come from the tax payer. See "Of lice and birds" for further details of my grand plan.
