Based on my experience, the external links in an article usually point to credible sources and I think it has a good mix of both criticisms and praises. It would be great if these references can be easily retrieved from DuckDuckGo.

I'm new to Git, Python, and Regular Expressions but I've started with some trivial code and here's its output: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1358088/output.p...

And code can be found here: https://gist.github.com/2557454

I'll try working on the extension but I still have to understand things like forking or pull requests.

I'm also parsing raw text, albeit rather naively, by calling Wikipedia's API on the fly. Is this the right way to do it?

Yes, I thought of triggering the thing with X references and it would be great if it looked something like http://duckduckgo.com/?q=simpsons+charac....

We actually have external links parsed internally. Note that external links are different from References. We parse the raw text -- are you parsing the HTML or using the Wikipedia API on the fly?

In any case, I could see this being triggered off of X references -- is that what you were thinking of?
