Some people have been asking for suggestions on where to look for data. There are links to some datasets associated with the individual project ideas on this website, but here is  a compiled list of some data sources that might be of interest to some of you. This is by no means exhaustive, but it gives an idea of what is available. If you are looking for something else, please ask. We can't promise you we will know of every source available, but we can hopefully point you in the right direction.
