Re-using Open Access data

I would like to propose a session to discuss (and put into practice) the re-use and repurposing of Open Access data. As a starting point, I’d take some of the Classical and other datasets made available for the Developers’ Challenge, and see how they can be exploited with text mining, searching and indexing, aggregating, disambiguating, improving, turning into Linked Data, and otherwise using in ways that the original creators might not have envisaged or intended.

We don’t need to worry so much about whether our outcomes are amazingly innovative and prize-worthy, just to see what ideas we can get out of freely available work, and what we can find to say about issues of re-use and Open Access in the meantime.
