Re. mathias' doc (don't pick up anything useful via opencalais, zemanta, 
alchemy or any of the other meta cartridges), what did you use for the 
entity extraction? I ask because we have bio2rdf and linked open drug 
data etc.. loaded to: http://lod.openlinksw.com . If the life science 
realm entities are extracted, we can get FCT to locate associated 
entities, all that is required is an extractor cartridge that is place 
ahead of the LOD lookup re. sponger workflow.

Note: Meta Cartridges are about doing lookups on the graphs produced by 
the Extractor Cartridges; basically, its about augmenting the graph with 
URIs culled from a variety of Linked Data space lookups.

I am very intrigued re. your extractor :-)

Re. your doc:

URIBurner [1] or our Live Demo Server [2], both include the Sponger with 
fully loaded Cartridges.

The sponger generates proxy/wrapper Linked Data URIs and it also makes a 
local Graph IRI using the URL of the sponged Resource. Thus, based on 
our AlchemyAPI meta cartridge you can do the following using the /sparql 
[3] or /isparql [4] (* this one lets you share results pages or query 
definition pages via URLs*) services associated with either instance

If you want to forcefully clear out cache when your query is executed:

DEFINE get:soft "replace"
SELECT ?o2 ?o3
FROM <http://webr3.org/__play/optimal/webr3.html>
                ?s rdfs:seeAlso ?o.
<http://rdf.alchemyapi.com/rdf/v1/s/aapi-schema#Disambiguation> ?o2.
                ?o2 ?p ?o3

If you are happy to work with warm cache or let the Virtuoso instance 
deal with the cache invalidation then:

SELECT ?o2 ?o3
FROM <http://webr3.org/__play/optimal/webr3.html>
                ?s rdfs:seeAlso ?o.
<http://rdf.alchemyapi.com/rdf/v1/s/aapi-schema#Disambiguation> ?o2.
                ?o2 ?p ?o3

## For just distinct DBpedia URIs

DEFINE get:soft "replace"
SELECT distinct ?o ?dbp  from <http://webr3.org/__play/optimal/webr3.html> 
WHERE {?s rdfs:seeAlso ?o. ?o ?p ?dbp
FILTER  ( regex(str(?dbp),".*dbpedia.org" ) )

1. http://uriburner.com/sparql
2. http://uriburner.com/isparql
3. http://demo.openlinksw.com/sparql
4. http://demo.openlinksw.com/isparql
5. http://bit.ly/bAY8Uy -- SPARQL Protocol URL for the first query above
6. http://bit.ly/amqdfE -- ditto, but seeking all DBpedia URIs from the 
sponged resource
