I've just added several new datasets to the Statistics page that
weren't previously listed. Its not really a great user experience
editing the wiki markup and manually adding up the figures.

So, thinking out loud, I'm wondering whether it might be more
appropriate to use a Google spreadsheet and one of their submission
forms for the purposes of collectively the data. A little manual
editing to remove duplicates might make managing this data a little
more easier. Especially as there are also pages that separately list
the available SPARQL endpoints and RDF dumps.

I'm sure we could create something much better using Void, etc but for
now, maybe using a slightly better tool would give us a little more
progress? It'd be a snip to dump out the Google Spreadsheet data
programmatically too, which'd be another improvement on the current

What does everyone else think?
