Great demo! Thanks a lot for this - as usual OpenLink is an early adopter of
emerging technologies. Just a tiny change request: we indeed changed
void:containsLinks to void:subset in order to allow more flexibility
regarding the modelling in the stats module.

Cheers,
      Michael

PS: Still Michael, not Micheal ;)
