Talking to wikipedia
How do you access wikipedia programatically ?
(List of all the available options)
(List of client libraries in various languages)
Who doesn't use a browser !
Have you guys written js before ?
Heard of events & callbacks ?

Without writing any code yet :-)
Lets pick a task
- The authors of the first 100 edits in an article
- Read the edit comments in an article
- The list of images used in an article
I'm sure you guys have better ideas :-)

They can do a lot of nifty things for you.
A tool I built with the API
They can be passed to other functions like variables.
The callbacks don't get executed right away.
jQuery when() , then() & done()
