Google Scholar Citations is up

This morning I received my notice that Google Scholar Citations, Google's new online tool for tracking your own publications, citations, etc., was up and running.

I haven't played around with it much, but I'm impressed that it automatically found everything I've produced that's on the web with only one mistake—it mistakenly concluded that I had authored a religious text.

I'm not quite so certain that it will be useful. After all, the number of citations that my papers generate don't improve the quality of my work. However, it's still fun to easily track these statistics, even if it only satisfies my own curiosity.
