Michael Nielsen who is writing a book about the future of science posted a week ago an excerpt with a scenario of micropublications. This is nothing else than Wiki-Science as is e.g. described by Kevin Kelly.

By giving the option of small contributions more people might be motivated to participate in the creation of something big.
