Accessing dbpedia with sparallax http://sparallax.deri.ie

thre are 400 dannyes,restricting to ayers (top left field box) yealds
10 but not there still
it could be we're running on the old versoin of dbpedia

Just a reminder that sparallax is open source and has the nicest
licence possible and can be put on top of any sparql endpoint to
provide your visiting fellows an interactive hint of what structured
data allows. (not just link to link navigation). Hope it can be of
use.


cheers
Giovanni

p.s. Sindice on the other hand has the new version and so does
http://sig.ma  so it shows there.
