Index Name PageRank
The above was generated by using scrapy to crawl TvTropes, cachine the pages in a SQLite database, extracting the shout outs with Beautiful Soup, storing those links in another table in the database, and then using networkx to calculate the page rank of each work, which serves as a convenient measure of influence. The user base of TvTropes skews young and geeky so this should be used as merely an entertaining approximation of the actual influence of various works of pop culture.
