Stanford University has just released a collection of large datasets of network data. When I say network data, I am referring to the mathematical term of networks (think of a collection of nodes and edges). Here are just a few of the possible categories.

- Citation Networks
- Road Networks
- Web graphs
- Social Networks such as twitter
- and many more

If you are looking to study network data, or just want some practice analyzing big data, this just might be a good place to start.

There is new class from Stanford called “Mining Massive Datasets”

Looks interesting.

Thanks I was planning to post it next week
