    How can I get massive amounts of business address data and business category data (coarse "restaurant" vs. "attorney" is fine)? A ton of sites have this, but I've only seen it on those sites and being sold for exorbitant ($400 or so) amounts. Is it somewhere out there for free?

    try a Gplaces scraper, and a database to website builder. Add a signup form, and you should have the genesis of your own directory. MY advise is to build vertical niche directories, as these have better perceived value, and would be easier to sell advertising space.
