Hi All,

I thought you might like to know about a contest where having here in
DC for web app dev that mashes-up DC.gov’s public data. It’s open to
all. Here’s the info:

Apps for Democracy will feature 60 cash prizes from $2000 to $100
dollars for a total of $20,000 in prizes. Developers and designers
will compete by creating web applications, widgets, Google Maps mash-
ups, iPhone apps, Facebook apps, and other digital utilities that
visualize DC.gov’s Data Catalog (http://data.octo.dc.gov), which
provides real-time data from multiple agencies to citizens — a
catalyst ensuring agencies operate as more responsive, better
performing organizations.
