Great list! You can add colormixers.com to it.
Another great one is Color Palette Generator where you upload an image and it creates a colorscheme from that image.
Thanks! Thats a nice addition.

You should add alvit.de/handbook or http://www.alvit.de/web-dev to it – there is A LOT of useful stuff.

ColorMatch 5000 has moved:
http://colormatch5k.com/

You might also consider adding GenoPal. It takes a very different approach to color palette creation: it isn’t based on the traditional color wheel, but on how the human eye perceives color.
