[tdwg-guid] Piggy Bank and bioGUID

Biodiversity informatics seems rather short on examples of RDF and  
Semantic Web browsers, and the promised dream of being able to link  
data together.

Prompted by Jim Balhoff of NESCent asking why bioGUID didn't play  
with MIT's Piggy Bank, I managed to get bioGUID tom play ball, so now  
you can extract RDF from bioGUID web pages, and store and browse  
these in Piggy Bank. Given that bioGUID tries to extract GUIDs from  
its sources, and renders all the RDF in a consistent fashion, it is  
possible to navigate around data from PubMed, GenBank, and DiGIR  

I've put some notes up at http://bioguid.blogspot.com/2007/08/piggy- 
bank-and-bioguid-browsing.html .
