Refine 2.0 helps clean up unwieldy data sets.

The Register: In July, Google purchased Metaweb Technologies, a company with a database that stored information on 11 million "things in the world," ranging from movies and TV shows to locations and companies. Now Google has released the source code for a new tool built on top of Metaweb software.
