Me: I'm not sure! 

My policy up to now has been to restrict the citations
to books, articles, magazine stories, newspaper stories,
things that are fairly permanent.

But I've been excluding mentions on people's blogs, as being
too ephemeral. I've also excluded mentions in Eric Weisstein's
World of Math, and in the Wkipedia, becuase there are so many of them.

About MathOverflow, that is also quite ephemeral. So my initial
reaction is to exclude such mentions.
