Wikidata is a new Wikimedia Foundation project. More information here [1].

Every Wikipedia page is a q-page in Wikidata (example DDG is Q12805 [2]) and evey q-page has got some property (In DDG by now only "is a", "license" and "main type" are defined).
It should be possible to show 0-click info by these data:

Here is an example:
"London" [3] has got property 6 (head of local government), which is Boris Johnson. If you search for "Mayor of London" in DDG, a 0-click info with "Boris Johnson" should be shown.

I hope you understood what I wrote :D

This would be best as a longtail because it needs lots of requests to find the property keys, values etc.

Tom Bebbington, if you'd like to develop this as a Longtail instant answer--please let us know and we'll update the status!

There are many possibilities with Wikidata, but I think this the best and most obvious starting point.

Other ideas are like the Wikidata labels are multilingual. So it could be interesting to show a result in language A even if the search string matched in language B. Reverse linking to the original discussion for documentation.

Are you sure a longtail would be the best answer type? I'd like to work on this but I think a spice should work as well because we have a public json api which can be used. However, I don't yet understand completely the advantages and disadvantages of the different datatypes. Maybe somebody of you can guide me a bit? :-)
