As an excuse to avoid packing my suitcase (an activity which I detest about as much clothes shopping) I wrote a few examples for Freebase Suggest.
The live demos are on the Freebase Suggest project page.
(Geek note: The 3rd demo includes a first attempt at a Freebase MiniTopic plugin for jQuery. This is a really easy way to generate an infobox or summary of a Freebase topic for your own page)

There are other live editors on the web but since I’m running my own I can easily configure it to support the different dialects out there.
