* Wikipedia: data and software are freely available. How are APIs licensed?
* geonames.org
* hostip.info
* gmail: server source is proprietary, but all (email) data is available via standardized/open protocols, and users can make the service transparent (from an identity perspective) by using other email addresses.
* Amazon EC2: server images are ~ standard xen images. If you can move your data and computation transparently between S3 and completely Free xen-based servers, is it open/free/autonomous service?
* GNU Savannah:
* Second Life: client is Free; service is not.
* audioscrobbler/last.fm:
* altlaw.org:
* chicagocrime.org (defunct): what happens when you mash up Free data with non-free services like google maps?
* [http://www.openstreetmap.org/ OpenStreetMap]
