Hello everyone,

 Thanks for the comments.

 Juan, Yves, Chris, Georgi and others, ODDLinker is still under
development. We are preparing a document that describes the details of
the linkage methodology and will put a draft on the website soon.

Thanks so much for pointing out this issue. I'll fix the URIs soon.

Yes, the underlying data currently comes from Freebase, and we expect
the size of the data to increase as Freebase is rapidly growing. The
approach could be generalized to data from other subjects in Freebase
as well. We chose to focus on movies to be able to provide a
high-quality source for a subject that was missing from the LOD cloud.
(We also RDFized IMDb but couldn't publish it online due to copyright
