Hi all,

I'm currently testing and experimenting a bit with OpenLink's ODS, see 
[1] and [2] (a view via Graphite). It probably has a good perspective 
(you can at least configure the features of Melvin's list), however at 
the moment it is

- very slow
- very complex
- I'm struggling logging in with my WebID (it doesn't redirect properly 
to my homepage ATM)
- the different representation formats/processing types are a bit 
confusing (JavaScript [4], PHP [5], VSP [6]) - one good working one with 
a good UX is enough

=> hence it is not ready for end-user consumption :\

In addition to this I experimented also a bit with URIBurner and 
enhanced my existing foaf.me profile there a bit with further data 
sources (mainly from examples of ontologies I co-developed), see [3].

Cheers,


Bo


PS: is data.fm down ATM, I cannot access this service
