Brilliant, thanks Yves, Hugh and others for the additions to the list - this is shaping up into a really nice resource.

I think that the republishing you've done of existing data Hugh is really valuable, and agree that ultimately we want this to move to the data owners. For now lets keep track of both types of data sets at the community.linkeddata wiki. 

Cheers,

Tom.

Cool :-) I maintain a list of datasets I'd wish could be available on
the data web at http://del.icio.us/moustaki/linking-open-data
I just selected the most relevant of them (mainly related to music)
and added them to the wiki.

Cheers!
