Re: LaTeX isn't just for typesetting!

Wikindx - unlike LaTeX - does not focus on formatting or structure - it enables the management, sharing, & insertion of bibliographic data and any associated notes that users add. This app is much more web 2.0 - users can participate, collaborate and take advantage of the work of others who have added to the bibliographic database. The system can become a knowledge base for any specific field of study.

LaTeX is great - but the point here is not structure - it is collaborative efforts to build up a searchable bibliographic system whose entries can be easily dorted and added to writing.
