Re Do From Start - what would research communication look like after a clean start?

Idea: 
Research communication carries with it the weight of 350 years of tradition, still using work-arounds for technological limitations from many centuries ago. What would research communication look like if we threw everything out and started again, given current technologies? I'd propose bringing people together for a day's workshop where we'd start with a blank page, and design something different that would meet the needs of researchers and users of research. At worst we'd have a better understanding of what it is research communication needs to be able to do. At best, we might even come up with something revolutionary!
