Looks very good - I'll give it a spin.  I'd be interested to know what algorithm is used here to bring the bird meaning to the top of the results.

I wonder about the utility of the directory/file metaphor (rather than the graph metaphor) since this brings with it the unintended notion of containment.  

As another browsing example you may be interested in this dbPedia/mashup browser I built as a toy in XQuery on eXist a while back.

http://www.cems.uwe.ac.uk/xmlwiki/RDF/classbrowse2.xq?resource=Kiwi

This is based on the three category systems used in dbpedia and had as its objective to be a picture-book browser.  It is very much a prototype and stresses the little server it shares with other eXist applications so please be gentle (I must look into moving it to the cloud)

Regards

Chris
