> Hello,
> I have been working on a cut down version of dbpedia, called dbpedia lite:
> http://dbpedialite.org/
> "dbpedia lite takes some of the structured data in Wikipedia and presents it
> as Linked Data. It contains a small subset of the data that dbpedia
> contains; it does not attempt to extract data from the Wikipedia infoboxes.
> Data is fetched live from the Wikipedia API. It uses Wikipedia pageIds in
> its URIs to attempt to mitigate the problems of article titles changing over
> time."
> The reasons for building it are:
> - to try build a webapp with RDF.db, Spira, Sinatra and Heroku
> - to experiment with using Wikipedia page ids in URIs (instead of titles)
> - to create small (<10) number of triples per thing on a REST API
> - live data for all things in Wikipedia
> - fun!
> There is no query interface - only a RESTful interface that following the
> Linking Open Data principles.
