(update: Thanks to some fancy scriptin’ by Chris “AnthroSource and CiteULIke now play well together”:/2005/06/27/citeulike-and-anthrosource-are-friends/ and Kerim even has a tutorial on “how to use the two”:/2005/06/27/tutorial-how-to-use-citeulike-with-anthrosource/ if you are not super web-savvy. Happy tagging!)
As Kerim “recently noted”:/2005/06/24/the-savage-minds-reading-list/ “CiteULike”:http://www.citeulike.org/ doesn’t know how to work with “AnthroSource”:http://www.anthrosource.net/. This makes interweb-savvy anthros cry. Luckily, Richard — the good soul behind CiteULike — has recently released a “CiteULike Developers Plugin Kit”:http://svn.citeulike.org/svn/plugins/HOWTO.txt which allows anyone with even a little scripting savvy to write a plugin that will allow AnthrSource and CiteULike to play well together (AnthroSource’s URLs look pretty easy to parse out, based on what I’ve seen).
Does anyone feel like writing up such a thing? I would do so myself but I am already so over committed it isn’t even funny 🙁 If anyone out there feels so inclined PLEASE let me know — not only will you get mad props from Savage Minds, you’ll demonstrate to AnthroSource and the AAA the power of open source development and open access scholarship. And, most important of all, you’ll make the web a better place for everyone to browse.
