Jack Andraka on the scourge of paywalls for scientific journals

Great article!   Describes how this teenager crashed into the scientific journal paywall.  The paywall is the wall that prevents 99% of humanity from benefiting from published scientific results.  The article also describes the development of his amazing new pancreatic cancer screening test, which is 168 times faster and 26,000 times cheaper than the existing system.

We need to move to Open Access journals so that everyone in the world can freely access knowledge, not just a tiny intellectual elite.
