There is no doubt that we have long entered into an information explosion age, and the pace is escalating by the minute. Not only have the borders between disciplines been torn down, but there are no longer any barriers between counties, states, regions, countries, and continents. Knowledge is no longer reserved for a privileged few, but indeed can be shared by all. This freedom of information is what we cherish as scientists, but this information is much more valuable when screened first by experts before dissemination.
