Richard is a freelance journalist who is very interested in the Open Access movement. He is also compiling a set of interviews with the leaders and thinkers behind open access called The Basement Interviews. These have featured people such as Lawrence Lessig, Vitek Tracz (founder of BioMed Central among other things), and most recently one of our founders Harold Varmus, from whom he heard about PLoS ONE.
Richard interviewed me by telephone and I’m quite distressed to discover how inelegantly I speak. Still Richard was asking some tough questions and I’m no politician.
