Thanks to the Wikipedia Community

DBpedia is essentially a data-oriented interface to the work of the Wikipedia community, and wouldn't exist without the massive contributions made by editors and authors at Wikipedia, or without the developers who built the underlying infrastructure that supports Wikipedia. DBpedia is intended to show how the information spread across many Wikipedia pages can be combined into a single integrated database. We hope this will make it easier for the amazing amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in new and interesting ways, and that it might inspire new mechanisms for navigating, linking and improving the encyclopaedia itself. DBpedia is our way of saying "thank you!" for Wikipedia…
