Freebase search command for Ubiquity

August 27, 2008

I just wrote a Freebase search command for Ubiquity:

If you don’t know what Ubiquity is then watch the video.

Ubiquity is going to be awesome for Firefox power-users. One of the best things about Firefox is the extension eco-system and Ubiquity is going to make writing extensions much easier.

P.S. Ubiquity is only on v0.1 and executes 3rd-party code on your machine. You probably shouldn’t install it in your main Firefox profile just yet.


Freebase London meeting

August 18, 2008

I’ll be at the Freebase London meetup on Wednesday night. If you’re interested in mashing-up open data, server-side javascript or just curious about Freebase then do come along and say hi.

One of the topics of conversation is sure to be the awesome prototype Freebase interface that David created, Freebase Parallax. Read the release notes and watch the video, it’s 8 minutes but it really gives you an idea of the power of Freebase.
