Over the last several months we have manually mapped more than 5,000 person name subject headings onto Freebase and DBPedia. And today we are pleased to announce the launch of http://data.nytimes.com and the release of these 5,000 person name subject headings as Linked Open Data.
Over the next few months they plan to expand this to over 30,000 tags.
Also, check out the NYT Article Search API.
Browse the headings and get hacking!
