Some times I run across shiny data sources and feel like I should tell y’all. So here’s a thread for that. Also it’s possible that these are already on tap, or by another name, or have been disqualifed, and I just don’t know about it yet (you folk are so productive!). Also, I should say that I don’t know that any of these sources allow scraping html, or ftp interfacing, or api, which I understand is necessary. Also, maybe some of these overlap?
Anywho, do what you will with them.
