BBC + Data.gov.uk mashup

Description

Publishes links to relevant data.gov.uk datasets next to news articles on the BBC website. Provides important context for those articles and increased visibility for the datasets.

Implemented as a simple greasemonkey Firefox script connecting to a simple search service built with Google's ajax search api.

Ideas for taking this project forward

Should be packaged as a firefox toolbar rather than a greasemonkey plug-in. And should probably not be reliant on google's search apis.

Would be better, of course, if it supported more websites.

Potential to add crowd-sourced citations too.

Estimated costs for taking this project forward
