All,

You may have picked this up from my tweets earlier today.

We can now produce Atom (using OData's Atom+Feed dialect) based 
Descriptor Documents for Entities in DBpedia, LOD Cloud Cache, and any 
other Virtuoso based RDF store.

Implications:
Ultimately (once we iron some issues with existing 3rd party OData 
clients), transparent OData application access and exposure for all 
Descriptor Docs of all the LOD Cloud Cache and DBpedia Entities.  
Naturally, we encourage other RDF store providers to emulate what we've 
done re. building a bridge to the burgeoning OData realm (publication 
and consumption).

Business of Linked Data Note:
Microsoft has a market place for OData sets in place called "Dallas". In 
a nutshell, they want to make the process of curating and maintaining 
data sets sustainable via a compensation system. All you do is get your 
stall in their pre-furnished (till included) Data Mart :-)
