For the past few years I've used the citation search feature of CiteSeer to look for references to papers or articles I'd written and could only come up with one; Concurrency And Computation: Practice And Experience . Running the same search on Google Scholar comes back with 12 papers which reference articles or papers I've written. 

As I expected my C# vs. Java comparison was my most referenced article. Speaking of which it looks like it is about time I got cranking on updating the document to take into account Tiger and Whidbey. All I need now is some Java expert [preferrably a Sun employee] to agree to review it from the Java perspective.

I am definitely curious as to how Google could come up with a more extensive database of published papers than CiteSeer. Interesting.
