I like "Data Unleashed" also. 

My only concern would be that it might be a bit limiting: for me, it
speaks of integration of heterogeneous data sources but not so much of
semantic web services or applications in knowledge management. 

Having said that, I don't think we are likely to find a better slogan in
two words!

I kinda like "Data Unleashed".

The Semantic Web IS/AS data realising its potential, rather than the
softer 'unleash your data'.
