Note about modernization:
*LifeDesks*  http://lifedesks.org/

Wouldn't something like this dramatically improve productivity and the
accessibility of taxonomic revisions?

There are a number of high ranking journals that exist in electronic form.
Including most of the BMC and PLOS journals.

Why has taxonomy been so slow to adopt these kinds of changes?
