Glad to contribute to that :-) We are using DBpedia in quite a lot of
services at the BBC, as detailed in our ESWC paper [1]. I am also
using it in almost all the services hosted at dbtune.org.

Wrt. future plans, here are a couple of things that would be very
great to have in future versions of dbpedia:
1) Query by example. You submit a bunch of DBpedia resources, and it
returns a SPARQL query selecting them and resources with similar
2) Live update from Wikipedia (but it seems quite close to being real, now)
3) An interface for submitting out-going links, instead of having to
ping the dbpedia list each time
