@drjwbaker @ostephens I fb you enjoy sparql there's always dbpedia : http://wiki.dbpedia.org/ or for a restful api how about https://www.foaas.com/ - hopefully I haven't just offended everyone here and wildly misread the lc vibe. A joke of course. But it is actually a first class api :) it has wrappers for pretty much every language and everything.

Also Wikidata is quickly becoming a great resource... Their sparql query service is top notch, and I have used the python lib SPARQLWrapper to iterate a specific query use case I had (reconcile VIAF IDs to Wikidata URIs)
