After the result renders, we're running everything back through the link detector, so you can continue to surf CrunchBase while remaining on the page you were interested in. Once you mouse over a second enhanced link, its title will go into the select box in the headline, and you'll be able to easily find your way back.
To minimize mistaken mouse-overs, we've added an arbitrary quarter-second delay between event detection and response.
This is a PROTOTYPE, folks. Feel free to try it out from here, but do NOT put it into production anywhere or I will rename the script. If you want to run it on your page, please host it yourself!
Mouse over any of the following links to see it working:
Please note that these are standard links, with absolutely nothing extra added. Due to the excellent foresight of the CrunchBadge site and API designers, everything you need is already right there in the URL.
Right now we're just showing titles, images, overviews, lists of relationshiops for companies, and Web presences for individual people. There's a ton more stuff in CrunchBase, and I can think of lots of interesting mash-ups to be done with stock quotes, Web search, social networking, and other stuff.
Mike Arrington and the rest of the TechCrunch / CrunchBase team, who are putting out one hell of a valuable resource, for free. Nicely done, you guys!
