You may have picked this up from my tweets earlier today.

We can now produce Atom (using OData's Atom+Feed dialect) based
Descriptor Documents for Entities in DBpedia, LOD Cloud Cache, and any
other Virtuoso based RDF store.

Ultimately (once we iron some issues with existing 3rd party OData
clients), transparent OData application access and exposure for all
Descriptor Docs of all the LOD Cloud Cache and DBpedia Entities.
Naturally, we encourage other RDF store providers to emulate what we've
done re. building a bridge to the burgeoning OData realm (publication
and consumption).

Business of Linked Data Note:
Microsoft has a market place for OData sets in place called "Dallas". In
a nutshell, they want to make the process of curating and maintaining
data sets sustainable via a compensation system. All you do is get your
stall in their pre-furnished (till included) Data Mart :-)
