Freebase is as collaboratively created and edited database of general, structured information intended for broad public use. It is designed to scale to a large number and diversity of users and data. Both an AJAX/Web based user interface and an HTTP/JSON based API are provided to allow use by and collaboration between both humans and software. In particular, these interfaces allow for an ``emergent workflow'' of collaborative, distributed data structuring and entity reconciliation, even if individual users are not intentionally cooperating in such information integration tasks.
