Ha! That phrase is often used, mostly by skepti-bunkers - and it's totally wrong. Think about the `atomism paradigm' in which most physicists are still trapped. As a result they can't even begin to usefully think about half-life, matter/mass and inertia (momentum), never mind entanglement. That's most of real physics. <snip> >But in this day and age, the Internet is the future of >publishing (IMO) and once placed on line, all you have to worry >about it marketing (and perhaps some good reviews by those who >come across it).

And the threat of the Wayback Machine should at least warn folk of embarrassing typos and might even loosen- up the stilted `passive-voice' of most current scientific papers.
