Last weekend, we took our open access button idea to the BMJ Hack and we built a protoype. We storify’d the weekend here. Who knew you could have so much fun? Indoors, on the hottest weekend of the year.

  47. @zotero We’d like to use translators in @OA_button to extract metadata from journals. What’s the best way to that in a 3rd party app/site?
