I was launching yet another site and I was looking for a place to (visually) link :BaseKB identifiers to. I could have linked them to Freebase, but I wanted something that was RDF native.
Well, I did some searching on my twitter feed and found an tweet from the irrepressible Kingsley Idehen and discovered that he'd built a browsing interface for :BaseKB a long time ago, which is built into the Linked Data Explorer.
It's pretty good: here's the page for Nike on my site, which links in turn to the Nike page in the LOD browser.
Unofficial Linking and the Unofficial RDF endpoint
For a long time I've heard from from people who'd like to see a dereferencing endpoint on
rdf.basekb.com. I've got some use for such a thing if I can get the latency really low, but been something I've needed, so it hasn't happened yet.
To make at least some sense of my URIs, I am now redirecting
which will at least let me see usage statistics and let you do something interesting with the URIs. Feel free also to use the link above if you want to show people a human-readable description of something in the :BaseKB namespace.
