It seems I have a Wikipedia page in my name (ok, I only did fact-check
edits, ok!?). So tonight I went looking for the corresponding triples,
looking for my ultimate URI...

Google "dbpedia" => front page, with news

on the list on the left is "Online Access"

what do you get?

[[

endpoint and as Linked Data.

Yeah. Unless you're a triplehead none of these will mean a thing. Even
then it's not obvious.

Could someone please stick something more rewarding near the top! I
don't know, maybe a Google-esque text entry form field for a regex on
the SPARQL. Anything but blurb.

Even being relatively familiar with the tech, I still haven't a clue
how to take my little query (do I have a URI here?) forward.

Presentation please.

Cheers,
Danny.
