Peter Suber, the de facto leader of the Open Access movement has been
appointed a Fellow of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at
Harvard University .
A brilliant choice, and eminently well-deserved. Peter -- whose
historic contributions to the growth of OA have been spectacularly
successful -- will continue his invaluable OA work, but this
Fellowship will also make it possible for him to begin writing the
books on OA and related matters that are welling up in him, and that
the world scholarly and scientific research community (as well as the
historians of knowledge) are eagerly waiting to read, digest and
learn from for years to come.

It is so gratifying to see true merit being rewarded occasionally, as
it ought to be (although my guess is that this is just the beginning
of the honors to be accorded to this selfless and sapient transformer
of Gutenberg scholarship into PostGutenberg scholarship).

With much gratitude and admiration,

Stevan Harnad
