The Corpus Callosum

The USA still leads the world int he number of scientific papers
published per year.  Germany and Japan were essentially tied
for second, for years.  According to a recent report by
Thomspon-Reuters ISI, there is a new player at the table:

The report is href="http://science.thomsonreuters.com/info/grr-china/">available
at Thomson Reuters, free registration required.
 Note that this says nothing about quality; it is all about
quantity.  (HT: href="http://paul.kedrosky.com/archives/2009/11/china_leaps_to.html">Paul

They thrive on open source technology, and the the notions of sharing and reuse.
