An annotated list of some open (free) data sources on the Internet

By data sources I mean programmatically consumable databases. I haven’t spent enough time with this article to judge the quality of the data sources, but I did pop onto one of them (Freebase) and finally got a flash of insight into the potential of the semantic web. Anyway, these lists from Read Write Web are always well thought out and include top quality sites, so if you’re ever looking for some piece of data to feed a hungry app, this list may be a good place to start.
