Collaboration Taking Place at Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics

There is somewhat of a transformation taking place at the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi’s blog. For a long time it has been a place where people could read articles and ask questions of Mr. Rossi about his work and progress on the E-Cat, and in that role it has proved to be a valuable source of information for anyone wanting to keep up with the E-Cat story.

What’s happening now is very interesting. Since Rossi appealed for help in trying to source turbines that would help him produce electricity efficiently, there has been a large number of apparently very qualified people sending him suggestions and giving him advice on how to proceed. Rossi has become the student in many ways and seems to be very receptive to ideas that are coming to him.

Rossi recently stated, “Nevertheless I am working hard to make electric power. I will get it, do not worry, because I am receiving a tremendous help from our Readers.”

It all shows what a valuable tool the Internet can be in the development of new ideas, and specifically, new inventions. It is tremendously helpful if you can find ways to attract the best minds to help you deal with difficult problems. Rossi has helped himself be communicating openly and warmly with his readers (he always thanks his readers for suggestions); this encourages people to try and help him.

It also helps that Rossi is working on a technology that can affect everyone on the planet — we are consumers of energy, and we have a vested interest in finding solutions to energy related problems, so there is a great incentive to help Rossi succeed.

So if you want to help Mr. Rossi succeed with his E-Cat invention and you have an idea that you think could help, just go to the Journal of Nuclear Physics and send him a message in the comments area — he’s reading them all.

    Not really. Rossi has treated this whole adventure as a business, avoiding any real collaberation with the scientific world. He reaps what he sows. As a businessman he can obtain the best talent like any other businessman must… buy the services of a consultant.

    To suggest that his enterprise (as he has designed it to be) should get top advice for free is an insult to the industries he wishes to sell his product to. He needs to man-up and pay for it, rather than trying to rip-off his readers.

    What a terrible reflection on the scientific world that Rossi is having to receive help from readers.
