Last week, I had the opportunity to finally meet in person many of the folks at BMC. The realities of electronic publishing are that you are in constant contact with many people who you never see and have never met personally. On the occasion of the BMC award reception, I had the opportunity to meet some of the very capable staff who work with me daily in publishing Retrovirology. When the story of Open Access publishing is finally written, it will in part be a magical tale about BMC and these capable young people doing great things to change the face of publishing. I am immensely grateful and honored for the privilege of working with such outstanding individuals.
