Since now we have a reliable source of citations from webpage meta data, I think we should also allow users to add quotes from the actual article to be added to the citation. Most users will not only want to get a citation, but quote specifically from the text. Perhaps that is our next task for the extension. Robert Lancer Harsha Alva I would love to hear your thoughts?

I think the big deal about this extension is that it will use meta data to help people make quick and easy outlines for whatever content the user is writing.

Open Graph metadata is not used universally. So it’ll be difficult to rely entirely on that.
Social Media is disruptive and allowing users to type their opinions would allow fiction to creep in, as seen in the recently concluded US elections.

So we need a system/solution that allows peer review of content.

I think the next step is to allow people to add direct quotes from the article to the citation created. If this works for NYTimes and WSJ that is great for us.
