What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

It is an novel idea with great potential to improve the scientific review process fundamentally. The challenge to us is how to establish the quality, reputation and impact of this journal/forum in the scientific and publishing communities so that we will not become just one of these thousands of new online journals.
