Hi Everybody

Great seeing a lot of you at WWW in Madrid. After the exciting BOF that we
organized, I felt determined to actually create an application that consumes
Linked Data. So while today everybody was leaving, Olaf Hartig and I spent
the afternoon hacking together a consuming linked data application with
SQUIN [1], which executes queries over the whole Web of linked data and,
hence, enables applications to access the whole Web as if it is a single
database. We used a SQUIN PHP wrapper[2], which allows a PHP developer to
send SPARQL queries in a SQUIN service, and gets the results back.

The demo [3] consists of mashing up data about the artist Lily Allen from
BBC Music, DBPedia, FlickrWrapper and Freebase.

More to come later...
