Inspired by the Google Wonder Wheel, in this paper we present Semantic Wonder Cloud (SWOC): a tool that helps users in knowledge exploration within the DBpedia dataset by adopting a hybrid approach. We describe both the architecture and the user interface. The system exploits not only pure semantic connections in the underlying RDF graph but it mixes the meaning of such information with external non-semantic knowledge sources, such as web search engines and tagging systems. Semantic Wonder Cloud allows the user to explore the relations between resources of knowledge domain via a simple and intuitive graphical interface.
