Two applications of Wikipedia - one of Meaning, second of Printing

Wikipedia has two fantastic offspring ideas.

In the first we can see what size it would have if printed on paper. See http://www.rob-matthews.com/index.php?/project/wikipedia/ (via David Weinberger). Have fun :-)

In the second, which I get into closer at last ESWC conference, called dbPedia, we have huge extraction of structured data or, structured data. I specifically like the term "Meaning Minining" coined by David Weinberger. Sings in my ears nigh to my "Web full of Meaning" as I call Semantic Web...

    First you remind us about sweeping changes in Poland, then the XX anniversary of your successful web services company, now you tell us about databases extracted from Wikipedia - and the promise of a new civilized world via the Semantic Web!!

    This is all great - do keep the pictures in the picture, too. Your photographs are also wonderful.

    Your blog is a fun and interesting place to visit!
