While we're at it, I'm interested in any SPARQL'able data sources, 
whether or not they contain links to other datasets or dereferenceable 
URIs. I make use of them regularly in tutorials and examples, so it's 
always good to know what's available.

In the past there have been lists on the ESW Wiki, but they regularly 
get stale and it would be good to refresh them.
