Two quick notes on contests, one germane to this blog and one which is shameless, self-serving promotion (but a good cause nonetheless). We’ll get the latter in first. My company, Forum One Communications, has entered the Sunlight Foundation’s Apps for America 2 contest. Our entry is called DataMasher, and it lets you relate government data sets to see interesting relationships. We made the top three and need your vote to win. Please . Thanks!
I also like to see that WoodenBoat has launched a second version of its . I posted about the first one a bit ago. The second riffs off of it, asking for a bigger boat that is equally fuel thrifty. We look forward to seeing the results of this one. I like they way WoodenBoat is moving power boating forward with these contests.
