All,

Here is the first salvo of what we've been hinting about re. server side 
faceted browsing over Unlimited Data within configurable Interactive 
Time-frames:
http://b3s.openlinksw.com/fct/facet.vsp

Simple example:

Enter search pattern: Microsoft

You will get the usual result from a full text pattern search.
Click on properties within Navigation section to filter the results such 
that you can see the property collection associated with the entity 
collection associated with the text search pattern ordered by count in 
descending order.

Use "Next" link to page through the properties.

Locate a property of interest and click to select (which just adds it to 
the query pattern assembled at the top left of the screen). Repeat using 
another property for further filtering.

Click on the URI of the entities revealed by you actions.

Addition information:

This is the Billion Triples linked data corpus.
This is a teaser / precursor to the LOD variant of Virtuoso 6.0 built to 
show how a real problem (faceted browsing across large data sets within 
interactive processing windows) is addressed using Virtuoso.
The browser is simply using a Virtuoso PL function that also exists in 
Web Service form.


Expect additional information via blog posts etc.

Enjoy!
