Let me know when you put them together.
I'd like to add Wikipedia to the mKR
collection of knowledge bases.

  Jens, thanks. dbpedia is a great resource. from the two categories files and the "articles categories" file, one can construct the whole structure of "what articles in what categories".

    One possibility is to go to http://wiki.dbpedia.org/Downloads and
    download the two data sets "Categories (Labels)" and "Categories
    (SKOS)". The categories are related via skos:broader and skow:narrower.
