ANN: starts publishing full catalog as RDF/XML using GoodRelations - 27 million triples

Dear all: has just started to serve a complete RDF/XML dump of their 
products and price information to the Web of Linked Data, using the 
GoodRelations vocabulary for e-commerce. The data dump is updated on a 
daily basis and contains detailed descriptions for roughly 450,000 
individual items. With about 60 triples per item, this totals to about 
27 million RDF triples.

Semantic Sitemap:

a) Software:

b) "Hardgoods":

c) Movies:

d) Games:

Other than many existing large RDF transcripts, the data very dynamic, 
holding the daily prices for all items.
According to Wikipedia, is the largest specialty retailer of 
consumer electronics in the United States accounting for 19% of the market.

It is likely the first Fortune 500 company to start publishing offer 
details on the Web of Linked Data.

Congratulations to Jay Myers from for this excellent 
contribution, and a big thanks to Andreas Radinger and Alex Stolz for 
their support,

Best wishes
