Hi all,

we have just released an RDF Book Mashup that demonstrates how Web 2.0 data
sources like Amazon, Google or Yahoo can be integrated into the Semantic
Web. 

The mashup makes information about books, their authors, reviews, and online
bookstores available on the Semantic Web. This information can be used by
RDF tools and you can link to it from your own Semantic Web data.

The mashup assigns dereference-able URIs to books, authors, reviews, online
bookstores and purchase offers. Whenever a URI is dereferenced, the mashup
queries the Amazon API for information about the book and the Google Base
API for purchase offers from different bookstores that sell the book. The
query results are returned as an RDF description to the client.

For more detail about the mashup and a search form to find your own books
please see http://sites.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/suhl/bizer/bookmashup/index.html

Cheers

Chris Bizer and Tobias Gauß
