Only 72 users. Hmmm...I don't why I would want to use this over Reference Manager.

C'mon NPG, you guys can do better than this!

Why is this better than del.icio.us? Or better enough to use both?

It's much cooler than del.icio.us, because it can keep track of articles in the citation format that science folk are most comfortable with: doi's in this case, I guess.

That said, it's much like citulike. But they (happily) acknowledge this:

Connotea was created by Nature Publishing Group's New Technology team. The ideas behind it come from del.icio.us, a general collaborative bookmarking service. Connotea takes this concept and adds some features to tailor it to the needs of scientists. CiteULike is a similar online academic bookmark management service based on del.icio.us, developed independently to Connotea. We're in close contact with CiteULike to ensure that our two systems work well together.

The coolest part for me would be finding what people I have a great deal of respect for are reading and citing at any given moment. That will be fascinating.
