Around the Web: Some resources on the Panton Principles & open data

As part of a workshop on Creative Commons, I'm doing a short presentation on Open Data and The Panton Principles this week to various members of our staff. I thought I'd share some of the resources I've consulted during my preparations. I'm using textmining of journal articles as a example so I'm including a few resources along those lines as well.

Please feel free to suggest additional resources in the comments.

Update 2013.01.30: Some followup posts with more resources and presentations I've done here, here, here and here.
