Within the MultimediaN E-Culture project I have been working on  
interface widgets for a while now.
Several of the components, facet navigation, result views and  
autocompletion that were part of /facet are now becoming modular  
widgets that handle their own interaction and fetch data through an API.

Currently I am still developing for the API's that we provide within  
our own server side software, ClioPatria [1].
I would love to make variants were we use SPARQL instead.
Any suggestions for a SPARQL endpoint that supports JSON?
