For about 3 and a half years I worked for Metaweb, Inc., the creators of Freebase. And while I really enjoyed working there, it was almost impossible for me to explain what it was we did. Well, the folks finally got around to making a cool video that explains it really well. So for those of you who always were trying to understand what it was we were up to at Metaweb, I give you:
which explains it really really well. This video is awesome. Hell, I wish we had made a video like this two years ago.
Meanwhile, Google bought Metaweb. Which is kinda ironical with me (and my former Metaweb boss) at Yahoo! now. But congrats to my peeps. I hope more people get it now
