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.
