Dear Friends,

The Internet Archive is looking for people (especially engineers) to join the Turn All References Blue (TARB) team and build the Wikipedia Citations Database (WCD).

A "Hello World" version of the project, developed by James Hare, can be found here.

In a nutshell… the goal of the WDC is to represent every citation, from every Wikipedia article, from every Wikipedia site, in a Wikibase.  And to support ad-hoc queries on that database.

Of course we will start with smaller goals and work our way up.

Please email me if you, or someone you know, might be interested in helping out.
