AW: New LOD Cloud - Please send us links to missing data sources

Hi Kingsley,

lots of interesting stuff. I especially like to see the first Freebase
wrapper in action.

I'm very open to include live wrappers into the cloud as long as the
generated data is somehow interlinked with other datasets in the cloud.

It would be great, if you could tell us which wrappers generate links to
other datasets or provide URIs that are referenced by other datasets in the

Thanks a lot for your help.

Since you include wrappers (e.g. Flickr) what about other wrappers (what 
we call Proxy URIs that produce Linked Data using our Sponger Web Service)?

We have wrappers for about 30 different data sources as per:
(notice the new table covering our cartridges with example URIs that 
includes: CrunchBase, Freebase, TheyWorkForYou, XBRL, and many others).
