[annotator-dev] Create annotations via script

Hey Andre,

You'd need...
1. something to find what you want to annotation: known names of people,
locations, law codes, religious text references, unlinked URLs (sad...but
it happens...).
2. then, you'd need to turn those locations into a selector that Annotator
3. then store that into a storage provide Annotator can read from.
4. lastly, provide Annotator with the content for which you've
automatically generated annotations.

There are lots of libraries for finding "known entities" or references
within web pages. My guess is you have one (or more) in mind for finding
these things? If so, you could start at #2. ;)

AnnotateIt.org provides API keys that you could use for exploring this
further. They use the reference HTTP API implementation (afaik)--docs for
that can be found at:

Hope that helps!
