Via a recent SurvivalBlog entry, I found a link to the CD3WD. This is a site that has taken various international resources on third world development and moved them to more open formats than they were originally. All the content is an amazing amalgam of HOW-TO data that is organized well, and completely open. They have topical zips of some of the content, or a friendly mirror of all of the 13gigs of content. Go browse the mirror and see the quality of the data, then grab a copy for yourself.
