I'd like to bring to everyone's attention the RDF sandboxes that have been 
set up and made available for our use - see 

These are a great resource - they allow projects to start exploring RDF 
without the hassle of setting up infrastructure (triplestores, sparql 
endpoints, etc.), and they allow all of us to load data into a common 
space for querying (as Cam did with Rod's frog data [1]).

(I've found the 4store instance to be particularly satisfying - for 
example, the bioblitz invasives testcases [2] load and execute 

(And if anyone has the time and inclination ... it would be great to have 
a sandbox with rule processing capabilities.)
