As an aside, a very silly use of dbpedia was to add it to my minecraft 
map generator so it pulls all the points of interest in the area and 
adds signposts in the Minecraft world.

The Tower of London has a huge stack of them because lots of notable 
people were executed on the same spot!

I also made a couple of other silly DBPedia hacks years ago and they 
still work to my surprise!
