What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

This is a very novel idea in the sense that we can publish all submitted articles including pre- and post-publication reviews at a minimum cost. In this way, innovative ideas will spread very quickly and not be cut short by some myopic reviewers. Fantastic!
