Freebase.com is the world's most ambitious, open-licensed, semantic database of all knowledge.
I would like to talk about the project, which is barely known, though has the capacity to change the internet dramatically.

My work over the past few years, all open sourced, has focused on integrating the freebase structure into
the web experience

After discussing what freebase is, and how it works, I will talk about
the work i've done concerning integration and augmentation of wikipedia, question answering, argument mapping, wikipedia citation analysis, and mapping relationships between webpages.

I aim to share my excitement about the free organisation of human knowledge.
