All,

One thing that should emerge from this server side faceted browser demo 
is the impact of inferencing based on UMBEL ontology.

Remember, UMBEL provides binding between the OpenCyc Upper Ontology and 
domain specific ontologies such as FOAF. Compare items 1&2 for an 
example of the effect of this Ontology "Meshup":

1. 
http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person  
(no UMBEL inferencing enabled)

2.  
http://b3s.openlinksw.com/about/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fxmlns.com%2Ffoaf%2F0.1%2FPerson&sid=177  
(UMBEL inferencing enabled)

Note the expanse of the FOAF vocabulary's graph courtesy of UMBEL 
linkage to other ontologies via  Equivalence, Subclass, and other links 
(what Fred refers to as  "domain explosion" in some of his blog posts).
