Another point that I wanted to mention (which is specific to your readers).

We're making Spinn3r 100% free for researchers.

If you're getting your PhD and need blog data we can totally hook you up :)

Thanks for the reminder. I was actually holding back on this as I wanted to do a longer post after speaking with you about more of the details. Let's try to do that next week.

Has any academic researcher actually gotten free access to Spinn3r?

Kevin has posted in a few places that this data is free for PhD students like myself.

However, I've had trouble getting access. I have found one specific dataset that was made available for ICWSM 2009 (International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media), but I would actually like access to the Spinn3r API so that I could get fresh data as well. I have twice requested access on the spinn3r website's contact form, but now months have passed and I am still waiting for a reply.

Did enthusiasm at Spinn3r for making this data available to PhD students just die out? I'm willing to give the Spinn3r guys the benefit of the doubt and just assume that they're too distracted with other matters, but it's a real shame because this would be a great dataset for research.
