What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

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 is quite obsolete. I searched for Shekhar-Pro (me) by using a where clause on ID 399722 and the data returned was for 8 Jan 2011. Why was the data so old?

Isn't the data 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:
