Hi John,
Cesar nailed it in different words. The best long term SEO tactic is to write for your target audience.

If offering them a link to more detailed or related info will provide useful info, DO IT.

Bing has said it looks at external links in its rankng algo. G just says it is more reliant on semantic search. That may or may not mean external links are part of the equation.

The primary consideration in SEO must always be the reader. If a SE cannot “see” the benefit of an external link now, it may as it develops its algorithm.

IMHO, always take the long term view in SEO.
Regs,
Johnw
