I think it is a fantastic way to bring focus to important and interesting data to a wider audience. We are already facing an information overload and add to it the problems of “fake news” and perils of “post truth”. Projects such as these are the surefire way to (a) tame the firehose and (b) make sure that well curated reliable information reaches where it should.
Your narration of how you curated Invironment gives me new ideas about implementing a similar project on evidence based health for my own students and readers. Using similar format, it’d be a good idea, it seems to me, to highlight key stores from journal articles, and write short commentaries.
