Yes, re the above!

Links relating to our products:

1. http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com -- RDF DBMS and Linked Data Deployment 
platform (amongst many others things)
2. http://ode.openlinksw.com -- Browser extensions, Bookmarklets, and 
URL patterns for Linked Data generation from a plethora of RDF and non 
RDF data sources
3. http://linkeddata.uriburner.com -- a Linked Data generation and 
transformation service (ODE is loosely coupled to this instance, but you 
can also point ODE to other services).

Maria:

Wondering if you would consider making a turtle document for your 
compilation?
