Authenticating with Freebase
While Metaweb is rolling out and scaling up Freebase, the API can only be accessed by users who have a Freebase account (currently invitation-only). Thus, you must use metaweb-login! to establish a cookie-based session before using any of the other API procedures provided by this egg.
