I've emailed the article to Neil.
If anybody else is interested - please drop an email.

The Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences, established by Neil Sloane at AT&T Labs Research in 1996 and run largely as a one-man shop, is poised to go "wiki," with 50 associate editors taking over much of the workload. The OEIS, or simply "Sloane" as it's known to sequence fanatics, is a database of nearly 200,000 lists of numbersa mathematical equivalent to the FBI's voluminous fingerprint files. Much as fingerprints give police a quick way to link a new crime to earlier ones, sequences enable researchers to make connections between mathematical problems that might otherwise go unnoticed.
