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?

Tim,

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
piece:

http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue43/chudnov/

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.
