All,

One of the cool things that came out of yesterday's opengraph schema 
enhancements was the mapping to DBpedia's ontology. Naturally, the 
effects of this aren't obvious if you can't even view the ontology etc..

Here is a link that shows the effect of TBox meshups:


BTW -- do note that the UMBEL project [2] was always about this kind of 
meshup. Now if you follow my TBox meshup, you will note that the DBpedia 
and UMBEL ontologies aren't directly connected, but once you get to 
OpenCyc (by following-your-nose) the connection manifests.

Conclusion:

As the lights really begin to brighten re. Linked Data, you will begin 
to see a lot more of what's be talked about in the past but not fully 
comprehended or appreciated. For instance, these mapper 
schemas/ontologies lay the foundation for optional "context rules" that 
make Linked Data meshes much more coherent and navigable (i.e., adding 
CLASSiness [3])

(note: the queries reflect older DBpedia incarnations).
