On a related note,

 while nothing can beat a custom job obviously,

i feel like reminding that those that don't have said mighty
time/money/resources that any amount of data that one wants  rom the
repositories in Sindice which we do make freely available for things like
this. (0 to 20++ billion triples, LOD or non LOD, microformats, RDFa, custom
filtered etc)

See the  TREC 2011 competition
http://data.sindice.com/trec2011/download.html (1TB+ of data!)  or the
recent W3C data anaysis which is leading to a new reccomendation (
http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/profile/data/)  etc.

trying to help.
Congrats on the great job guys of course for the Semantic web challenge
which is a long standing great initiative!
