I have the 2010 data ('summary file 1' for Census geeks) down to the block group level working; block level is giving me some grief, though. I'm hoping to get the ACS data captured by Saturday. If there are other Census geeks around, please let me know if you've got some shortcuts. Yes, I know there's a nifty API that returns JSON - I've got an API key. But you need to know what you're looking for to make the API useful. ;-)
M B I now have the ACS *raw* (*very* raw) data for Oregon and Washington from the ACS 1-year, 3-year and 5-year datasets (all ending in 2011 - the most recent). I've found a website / Github repository with scripts for importing said data into a PostgreSQL database. Apparently the Center  for Urban Research in NYC solved this problem for themselves - 
I'll be running these scripts at some time in the future but it's highly unlikely I'll do it before the hackathon is done.
