I'm pleased to announce the first release of ProductDB:


ProductDB is a Linked Data view of ProductWiki.com
(http://productwiki.com/), a community wiki oriented around consumer
information for products. All wiki content is licensed under the GFDL.

This first conversion contains product names, list prices, alternate
names, reviews and links to external sites for over 20,000 products
represented using a blend of GoodRelations, FOAF and OpenVocab. The
product categorisation scheme has been converted using SKOS. There are
about 500,000 triples in the dataset and since it is Linked Data, all
the entities have URIs. For example:

* http://productdb.org/apple-iphone
* http://productdb.org/2006-porsche-boxster

There are some owl:sameAs links to dbpedia resources, e.g.

* http://productdb.org/asus-eee-pc-701
* http://productdb.org/shaun-of-the-dead

We hope to improve cross-linkage to other datasets in the future.
