One Scientist's Solution... the question of where do we get funding if not from institutions and grants, which provide such research money based on merit defined as publications, presentations, etc, is crowd-funding the fees.

A really neat article and video about Ethan Perlstein's approach to the open science and open source model and his research on evolutionary pharmacology.  This is a fantastic idea and could be used as a model for other researchers out there.  This at the very least could be used as a means for researchers to  engage open science and sharing data and cultivating a public collective conscience about scientific research and its funding.
