What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

it seems to be a good forum for everyone who wants to share his knowledge/views in a particular speciality. it will help everyone in learning and developing the areas of interest. it will also encourage the youngsters to express their scientific work, which can be reviewed by other specialist globally.
