Onfolio Meets Thomson

Or is it the other way around? Thomson meets Onfolio?

It’s tough to give a product demonstration during a reception in the exhibit area, but the Thomson Scientific people did a great job. Thomson Scientific and Onfolio have teamed up to use Onfolio’s Web grabbing, organizing and publishing technology to interface with Thomson’s bibliographic citation products, primarily EndNote. Thomson Scientific, explained Onfolio’s Sebatian Gard, will handle sales and distribution of Onfolio’s Pro package. This seems a natural fit, given Thomson’s entree into the academic community who would be most interested in using the Pro version. Do people other than academics uses Pro? Surprisingly, at least to me, it’s about 20% of the user base. They’re folks like devout hobbyists and genealogists — folks willing to pay a modest amount for a fully configured product to save Web searches, RSS feeds, documents, emails, and the like. Check out the "newspapers" you can create using Onfolio.
