Apt phrase, Patrick.  

How will corporate sponsorship shape what knowledge and methods are shared... and more importantly NOT shared? Will academic life no longer be "peer review", but mostly "sponsor review"?  

Can one be an expert/scholar by publishing directly on-line (i.e., personal blog), or will one still need to go through an "approved" intermediator?
