Hello,

Having just seen the bigger and better LOD cloud [1]. I was wondering  
whether QDOS should have a link to DBpedia, as we emit owl:sameAs  
relationships from celebs to dbpedia resources: see Barak Obama's  
turtle file [2]. QDOS currently has around 100,000 people, about half  
of which are linked to dbpedia resources.

Cheers,

Mischa
