Hi Dan,

What we provide is a bit richer because we go through their API. For 
example, we provide number of views, related slideshows, and keywords, 
etc. Also, I'm hoping that we can do links out to other data sources. I 
think that would be the clear value add.

What do you think is the most appropriate approach  "linking out" from 
existing data sources is?

Thanks,
Paul
