I was querying data from http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/atom using a LINQ query in LINQPAD and found that the data I got back are quite obsolete. I searched for Shekhar-Pro (me) by using a where clause on ID 399722 and the data returned were for 8 Jan 2011. Why were they so old?

Don't the data there get updated in real time, or at least frequently?

If not, where can I get realtime data?

SEDE data is updated weekly. Usually on Sundays.

The creative commons data dumps are updated bi-monthly (every 2 months):

If you need more real time data, use the API:
