Freebase + Ruby

Jan is working on a Ruby connector for Freebase.

His initial results look really promising:

metallica = Freebase.find(:first, :name => 'Metallica', :type => '/music/artist')
metallica.album.first(5)
=> ["Kill 'Em All", "Ride the Lightning", "Garage Days Re-Revisited", "...and Justice for All", "Harvester of Sorrow"]
metallica.genre
=> ["Metal"]

Way to go Jan! This is definitely a glimpse of the future, high-level programming with the world’s knowledge at your finger tips.
