Dear all:

I just found out that Kingsley Idehen released a major update of 
Virtuoso sponger cartridges that create and collate "virtual" meta-data 
for existing Web pages.



for an example.

The cool thing is

- The data does not come from BestBuy directly; it is collected and 
collated on the fly from APIs and other resources (i.e. this is not yet 
the original BestBuy data).
- It used the full level of detail of the GoodRelations ontology for 
e-commerce, http://www.ebusiness-unibw.org/wiki/GoodRelations (not just 
1 -2 properties).
- It exposes both price information and technical features in GoodRelations.
- If you request an XHTML version of the page, you get the meta-data in 
RDFa for further reuse and combination in novel scenarios.

There are a few very minor issues with the data; we already provided 
respective feedback to Openlink SW. But all should be quick fixes.

I am confident that this is a major step for a Web of Linked Data, 
because the same approach can bring unprecedented amounts of highly 
detailed GoodRelations data for existing Web content.

Well done, Kingsley!
