And I thought I didn't like Streisand

While Babs’ vocal stylings may be an “acquired taste”, today I have a new appreciation for the Streisand Effect.
Thanks to Slashdot, I learned that Thomson Reuters is suing the Commonwealth of Virginia alleging that Zotero, an open-source reference-management add-on for Firefox, contains features resulting from the reverse-engineering of Endnote, a competing commercial reference management product.
Turns out that while I am pretty happy with Bibdesk, it’s not the perfect solution for me. I had never heard of Zotero, so I downloaded it and played around. Color me impressed. If you are looking for a browser-integrated citation and reference management tool, I’d give Zotero a look.
