The below is cross-posted from the THATCamp SoCal (The Humanities and Technology Camp Southern California) blog at http://socal2011. thatcamp. org/01/12/notes-on-freebase-bootcamp-session/ *** I've been hearing about Freebase for awhile now, especially from Jon Voss, who organized and ran THATCamp Bay Area, so I figured I'd go to that BootCamp session here at THATCamp SoCal. I'm very, very glad I did. It was taught by Kirrily Robert, who's Skud on Twitter.
