My company, Bitzi, stewards a collaborative effort to collect,
review, and republish metadata about discrete files, keyed by
their cryptographic hashes. Much like the Open Directory Project
("DMOZ"), we will make the aggregate data we collect available 
for reuse and creation of derivative works under a free license.

Our very first experimental data dump, as RDF, featuring the
"best" contributed datums about 261,190 files, is now available 
at:

    http://preview.openbits.org

Those people interested in the issues surrounding peer-to-
peer content sharing and file authenticity might especially
want to take a look.

Everything -- including the dump format, license, and 
contribution systems -- is still in experimental form, so
comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!
