Will we ever get it right?

Of course we will!

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

Or, to put it another way, if we have enough Code Monkeys hacking away, we will (eventually) get the perfect system that will give us Green Open Access with Green Publishers.

In fact, the protocol for doing this is defined in RFC 2795

We just need to “Keep the faith”
