Peter Binkley's wordpress plugin that will allow the reference of
other books and objects appears to be almost 3 years old. You can find
it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COinS#Server-side_applications_which_embed_COinS

Is this still working for people? Have more wordpress coins
integration been done since?

I am interested in referring to articles, and books etc from a blog.

Let's say that I am self-publishing an small academic paper on a blog,
and I want to publish coins data for all the citations in that
paper... so people could easily lookup / add to their reference
manager the citations that I use right from my blog... Is Peter
Binkley's plugin still the easiest/only way to do this?

COinS is great. Who came up with it in the first place?

I put together a blog entry with some contextual information for COinS
that might help clarify the issues involved. Look there for a link to a
some COinS-aware tools.

A bunch of people on this list proposed the idea explicitly in this


But it had been in the wind, so to speak, before that (see that
paper's references).

Ross Singer came up with the names "COELACANTH" and "COinS". "COinS"
seemed snappier. :)

Thanks for the great replies.
This link also helped me do what I want to do:


Now I can just include the span tags generated by Zotero on my web
page! (I imagine this is what the wordpress plugin does for you) but I
have not tried it yet.
