Zotero moves cloud-wards

Online Research: Zotero Moves Into the Cloud - ReadWriteWeb:
"Zotero, the popular open-source research and bibliography tool, just announced the latest version of its Firefox plugin (1.5b1), which now allows users to synchronize their databases between different machines, as well as a number of smaller updates that will make it even easier to create and curate bibliographies with Zotero.

Zotero also announced a new online component to its plugin, which, in conjunction with the new synchronization features, automatically creates an online backup of your database on Zotero.org."

Fantastic! This is a great little tool for academic research... and its move into the cloud builds in a layer of flexibility that other note-taking services such as those from EverNote and Zoho have been offering for a while. Will be giving this one a good bashing over the next few weeks... not least because I've got a lit review to write and any help is good help in my book!

Take a look at the full ReadWriteWeb article for more details on this 'un. My inner nerd is happy! :o)
