Using CiteIt with different Media Types

CiteIt is developing tools that allow you to add context to your media, whether it is written word, audio, video, wikipedia, or twitter.

1. Expanding blockquote

Click on the blue arrows above and below the quote to expand the context:

Tyler Cowen interviewed Rabbi David Wolpe as part of his Conversations with Tyler Series. Rabbi Wolpe said:

I think that Judaism has the same problem that any thick civilization has in a world in which, as you say, context is stripped away. And not only is context stripped away, but attention to any one thing is scanter and less than it used to be. So, for example, a lot of Jewish commentary is based on your recognizing the reference that I make. Who recognizes references anymore? Because people don’t spend years studying books.

2. Contextual Popup

Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” draws its title, in part from a line where the books’s main character, Elizabeth says:  I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.   

Click on blue-grey quote above: ("I could easily forgive his pride ..")


HTML code:
.. Elizabeth says: <q cite = "https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Pride_and_Prejudice/Chapter_5" data-citeit-citing-url = "https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Pride_and_Prejudice/Chapter_5/">  I could easily forgive <i>his</i> pride, if he had not mortified <i>mine.</i></q>   

Developer mode:

If you inspect a page that has contextual citations in developer mode, you will see the contextual JSON files.

In this case, the JSON file is named after the sha256 field which is: 59137b97e93432e .. .js

Wikipedia Citations #


Article Popups

Wikimedia already has contextual popups which appear when a reader mouses over a linked article.

Here’s a screenshot of the popup that appears on the Los Angeles Lakers article when a reader mouses over the link to the Los Angeles Sparks Basketball team.

Contextual Popup

Below is a screenshot of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg article mockup which shows the CiteIt Contextual Popup that appears when a reader clicks on the light grey-blue text of a contextual quotation, in this case: “Ginsburg precedent“.

Malcolm Gladwell Interview: "Westerns"

Consider how adding the video's YouTube URL to the blockquote's cite tag allows the CiteIt.net javascript library to automatically embed the video and lookup the surrounding transcript (if a matching transcript is found).

Here is a quotation from Joe Rogan's interview with Malcolm Gladwell.

  1. a Western is where is conceptually a world in which there is no law and order and a man shows up and imposes personally law and order on the territory the community right
  2. so there is also a eastern what is in Eastern and Eastern is a place where by contrast is a story where they're like I got this straight it was four types the Eastern is where there is law and order there is so there are institutions of Justice but they are have been subverted by people from within so an Eastern would be the Serpico is an Eastern it's a crooked cop who is it's the bad apple who has you know screwed up there there's lots of tons and tons of of Hollywood movies are Easterns
  3. the northern is the case where law and order exists and law notre is morally righteous system works law know that show law and order is a northern it's a functioning apparatus of Justice which reliably and accurately produces the right the correct result in confronting criminality every single day when it's on TV
  4. the southern is where the the entirely the southern is all John Grisham novels or Southern's they are where the entire apparatus is corrupt and where the reformer is not an insider but an outsider

HTML Formatting (such as bold and italics) is allowed within a citation, so long as the plain-text version matches the original quote's plain-text version.
