"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

Federated search and distributed search seem to be quite interesting research problems.

Federated search research seems most focused on the enterprise where it seem solvable (not trivially solvable, but solvable).

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.
