To sharpen the point I made the other day about the eroding bias toward giving the Nobel Peace Prize to Americans and Europeans, here’s a comparison of the nationalities of winners before and after 1960.
|before 1960||after 1960|
Here’s another point I forgot to mention. There are gaps in timeline for the Nobel Peace Prize, because it wasn’t awarded in 1914-1918, 1923, 1924, 1928, 1932, 1939-1943, 1948, 1955-1956, 1966-1967 and 1972. The timeline shows those gaps concisely:
As in the earlier examples, you can do this with point-and-click filtering in Freebase, no query-writing required. Which is awesome.
I made it sound like Freebase loaded directly IMDB data while what I should have specified is that we loaded the IMDB ‘identifiers’ along with our movie data.
Thanks Stefano. And, kudos to the Metaweb team!
