They say this won't change anything for Mendeley users and that they're still committed to their Open API efforts, all the while acknowledging that Elsevier's reputation hasn't been the best as of late. If you're currently a Mendeley user will you continue using it from now on? Or will this move prompt you to start evaluating alternatives such as the open source, Firefox-based Zotero?

So far the pledges have crossed the $3.75 million mark, more than 4 times the initial project goal of $900k, thus funding the game and 15 of the 18 stretch goals. If the pledges reach $4.5 million all the 18 stretch goal will have been funded. Once completed the game will be DRM-free and available for Windows, MacOS X and Linux.
