Standard Ebooks is a volunteer-driven project that produces new editions of public domain ebooks that are lovingly formatted, open source, free of U.S. copyright restrictions, and free of cost.
Ebook projects like Project Gutenberg transcribe ebooks and make them available for the widest number of reading devices. Standard Ebooks takes ebooks from sources like Project Gutenberg, formats and typesets them using a carefully designed and professional-grade style manual, fully proofreads and corrects them, and then builds them to create a new edition that takes advantage of state-of-the-art ereader and browser technology.
Standard Ebooks aren’t just a beautiful addition to your digital library—they’re a high quality standard to build your own ebooks on.
The Personal Genome Project, initiated in 2005, is a vision and coalition of projects across the world dedicated to creating public genome, health, and trait data. Sharing data is critical to scientific progress, but has been hampered by traditional research practices. The PGP approach is to invite willing participants to publicly share their personal data for the greater good.
This is a collection of material to learn autarky 99 (economic self-reliance / self-supply) for individuals, households and villages. All materials relevant for that can be included here, as long as they are more comprehensive than the ubiquitous article format. Only material that is free to download is of interest here (with a few exceptions). Here is what we found so far, and you’re welcome to extend it (just edit away, this is a wiki).

The Public Domain Manifesto.
A public domain collection of corpora for training AI ML bots. Consists of many YAML files containing key/value data on many different subjects. Each category contains multiple documents about different related subjects. You won't be able to drop these into your code randomly, you'll need to write a fairly simple parser tuned to the document's schema. There are several libraries in different programming languages for efficiently using one or more of these files in your own project.
