I'm actively working with my team and exploring a new product that, ideally, will make it easier to search and join disparate data sets. At the core, we believe, a lot of the solution lies in the hard work of Ontologists and Wikipedians. I'm doing my best to get deeper to understand the community as it stands, the tools, the short-comings and successes.     (1E)
