The big news this week was all about the government shutdown. FCW's coverage documented its effects on:

Contract protests, and;
The ability of feds to take other work until furloughs end.
See all of our shutdown coverage here.
But there was more going on than that. Our Federal List feature offered tips to better leadership, a list of prolific tweeters among agency officials and six DARPA projects that sound like science fiction but are headed toward reality. See the full Federal List feature here.
