Hey, lots of people in US government doing increasingly good jobs of customer service, and Government Computer News has a good list for everyone to check out at Great .Gov Web Sites

One example:

Data.Gov sets the tone for transparent government

SITE: Data.Gov | USASpending.gov
AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget/General Services Administration
TECHNOLOGIES:

  • LAMP stack (Linux, Apache HTTP server, MySQL, and PHP).
  • Adobe Flex and Microsoft Silverlight visualization software.
  • The Drupal Content Management System.
  • Google Motion Chart (free, publicly available Web service).
  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS).
  • Google keyhole Markup Language (KML).

I also liked the use of Flash at Utah.gov, hardly looks like a .gov site.
