Might be a good time to play with some civic data! Kaggle competition on open311 data provided by Seeclickfix is active with hundreds of participants. Some of the early visualizations and learning are great.
Head over to kaggle.com for the competition and the datasets.

Mashable had an article on this yesterday. I don't how helpful / comprehensive this will be, but there's a site call Quandl that indexes a lot of the major federal sites and data stores (e.g. census data).

Friends, 

I too was in shock to find out that the Govt shutdown also shuttered data.gov. Alone I was not. 

Yesterday, Code for America's CTO started to assemble a collection of census data < http://forever.codeforamerica.org/Census-API/shutdown-2013.html >

Over the next few days, CfA will be trying to recover as much data as possible. If you have quality Federal data on a hard drive, etc. contact @michalmigurski.

…make positive energy on space ship earth!
