PeerJ – Disrupting scientific publishing?

Today I enjoyed a podcast interview with the founders of PeerJ. Peer J…

PeerJ is an Open Access publisher of scholarly articles. We aim to drive the costs of publishing down, while improving the overall publishing experience, and providing authors with a publication venue suitable for the 21st Century. Our tag line is: "Your Peers, Your Science. Academic Publishing Is Evolving" and we are committed to improving the process of scholarly publishing.

And they are backed by O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures… fascinating! They have a radically different business model. I’m curious what my scientist friends/readers think?
