This looks cool.

Today we’re pleased to announce the addition of approximately 5,000 new subject headings to data.nytimes.com. These subjects include organizations, publicly traded companies and geographic identifiers, ranging from Apple Inc to Kansas to Williams College. Like the 5,000 person-name subject headings released last October, we have mapped our latest crop of subject headings to DBpedia, Freebase and — in the case of our geographic subject headings — GeoNames.

So why are we so excited about this?

I have no idea. (But thanks for using Williams as an example!) Perhaps one of our more tech-savvy readers (DeWitt Clinton, Steve O’Grady) could explain how we might use this to better organize information about All Things Eph . . .
