Hi Juan,
Nice stuff.
I hate to pick up on something from interesting stuff like this, but:
"which executes queries over the whole Web of linked data and, hence, enables applications to access the whole Web as if it is a single database".
I don't think so.
It doesn't do "the whole Web of linked data", never mind the whole Web.
Best
Hugh

Hi Everybody

Great seeing a lot of you at WWW in Madrid. After the exciting BOF that we organized, I felt determined to actually create an application that consumes Linked Data. So while today everybody was leaving, Olaf Hartig and I spent the afternoon hacking together a consuming linked data application with SQUIN [1], which executes queries over the whole Web of linked data and, hence, enables applications to access the whole Web as if it is a single database. We used a SQUIN PHP wrapper[2], which allows a PHP developer to send SPARQL queries in a SQUIN service, and gets the results back.

The demo [3] consists of mashing up data about the artist Lily Allen from BBC Music, DBPedia, FlickrWrapper and Freebase.

More to come later...
