Data mining the Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve now has the ability to have its data programmatically retrieved.  The St. Louis Fed Web Services allows programmers and data scientists to retrieve key economic data from their libraries.  I have not had a chance to peruse the site at all but this can be a really interesting source of data.  The age of Open Data is really upon us.  This can lead to some really interesting research for professionals and amateur scientists.
