Just wonderful, this contribution of Andrew, and very close to (my) real life.
I wholeheartedly agree.
I do think, though, that it's a good idea to have the 'core' literature of your field
in something like Endnote. Entering it there while writing papers, instead of putting
it right into the paper makes life a lot easier eventually ...
