Thanks for highlighting this Ivan, very interesting.  Zhishi.me is a nicely done site showing the power of multi-lingual representation of LOD. I can understand the structure of the page, in English, and can also see the related pages in Chinese.

I'm going to start talking about this in upcoming "what is the state of LOD talks" ... I have one later this week at NASA Goddard and next week with international publisher, Wolters-Kluwer.  Thanks again.

Cheers,
Bernadette

I am not sure of the exact numbers, but the combined result, under the name of Zhishi.me, is of the same magnitude in size than dbpedia. Just like dbpedia acted as a seed for the LOD, the idea is that zhishi.me will act as a seed to pull in more linked data from China.
