UK Government Sponsors a Data Mashup Contest
Posted by workerthread on August 12, 2008
This could be interesting – the UK government is sponsoring a Show Us a Better Way contest. Basically they are running a contest where you can submit ideas to which make better use of public information in the form of mashups, KPIs, visualisations etc. The site points you to a variety of public data which you can use for your prototype and the how-to post gives example of some of the development frameworks you might use, for example Popfly or Yahoo Pipes.
And there’s a £20,000 prize up for grabs! According to the site faqs the closing date is end of September 08.
