Hi Paul. Have you considered just going onto Kaggle and GitHub and 
searching for some of the many freely available real datasets that are 
posted there? I'm seeing a lot of productivity there days with research 
focused on data generation, and not just on creating algorithms and 
predictive models. Which is a good thing for us ;)

One of the current research papers I'm working on now is based on mining 
a dataset I discovered on Kaggle a few months back and trying to create 
a novel solution for that. Proper credit will of course be provided in 
the citation references for the data provider.
