Recently, I've gotten interested in using some open government data to build useful web applications. There has been a bit of work in this space, with many Federal agencies sponsoring app contests for developers to create products that show off the agencies' datasets. Challenge.gov</a> is the central listing of these app contests; take a look if you are interested in seeing what kind of challenges are open for entries. I've had a bit of experience working with government data and here's some of the most interesting datasets that I've found so far.
