60,000 peer-reviewed papers, includ­ing the first peer-reviewed sci­en­tif­ic research jour­nal in the world, are now avail­able free online. The Roy­al Soci­ety has opened its his­tor­i­cal archives to the pub­lic. Among the cool stuff you’ll find here: Issac New­ton’s first pub­lished research paper and Ben Franklin’s write-up about that famous kite exper­i­ment. Good luck get­ting any­thing accom­plished today. Or ever again. —
