I discovered this data brokerage service from GNIP which offers complete access to data sets from Twitter, Tumblr, Foresquare, WordPress and more, it also offers a partial service for companies like Facebook, Flickr, Instagram.

Im wondering if anyone is interested in pulling together a team (or teams) for AngelHack London on the 10th and 11th of November.
