Dear DBpedia enthusiasts,

DBpedia is perhaps the most widely known Linked Data source on the Web.
You can use DBpedia in a variety of ways: by querying the SPARQL endpoint,
by browsing Linked Data documents, or by downloading one of the data dumps.
Access to all of these data sources is offered free of charge.

Last week, a fourth way of accessing DBpedia became publicly available:
DBpedia's triple pattern fragments at http://fragments.dbpedia.org/.
This interface offers a different balance of trade-offs:
it maximizes the availability of DBpedia by offering a simple server
and thus moving SPARQL query execution to the client side.
Queries will execute slower than on the public SPARQL endpoint,
but their execution should be possible close to 100% of the time.

Here are some fun things to try:
- browse the new interface: http://fragments.dbpedia.org/2014/en?object=dbpedia%3ALinked_Data
- make your browser execute a SPARQL query: http://fragments.dbpedia.org/
- add live queries to your application: https://github.com/LinkedDataFragments/Client.js#using-the-library

Learn all about triple pattern fragments at the Linked Data Fragments website
http://linkeddatafragments.org/, the ISWC2014 paperhttp://linkeddatafragments.org/publications/iswc2014.pdf,
and ISWC2014 slides: http://www.slideshare.net/RubenVerborgh/querying-datasets-on-the-web-with-high-availability.

We wish you a nice time with this new DBpedia interface!

Best regards,

Ruben
