So what does Metaweb...do, exactly?


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
