Hi Patrick.  Just a couple of questions....  I noticed that your Freebase profile was just created last month.  It does take some time before Google notices that information and updates their Knowledge Graph.  But you mentioned that it was automatically created by the Wikirecon bot.  Did you edit or add any other information to the page?

The Knowledge Graph also pulls information from strong Google+ profiles.  So I would recommend including as much information about your organization as possible in your G+ profile.  I did notice that both on your site and in your Google+ profile, you don't have a business address listed.  I'd recommend using some sort of address or location info for your business.  You also mentioned that you marked up some things using structured data, but I didn't really see any on your site.  Could you please provide an example or two of pages that you added structured data to, or were you simply referring to your publisher tag?

Ok, thanks for the info, Patrick.  Well, I would recommend a few different things.  First, I would recommend that you begin using some sort of address or location info and adding it to your site and G+ page as well as to your Wiki and Freebase pages.  Then I would recommend that you add all of those various page links to both your Google+ page and your site so that Google can see "the connection", so to speak.  I'd also suggest that you use schema.org/Organization on your site to mark up your organization's name, logo, etc, and use the "sameAs" property to link it to your Freebase or Wiki page.  In other words, provide and mark up as much information as possible, then give it some time.  While you wait (and as a general rule), work on improving the authority and trust of your site, sending as many quality signals to Google as possible.  

I hope the above info helps.

David

Patrick, did you add the schema to your home page or on another page of your site?  Because I'm not seeing it.

Ok, yes, I see it now.  Just a couple of suggestions:  I'd add the "description" property to your Organization markup, and I'd remove all of the URL property tags with the exception of the link to your home page.  All of those URL properties will conflict and confuse search engines.  I think you need to include some location info, too.  And in your article markups, I'd suggest including the authors' last names in the Person markup as well.
