Netsquared is holding a “mashup challenge” to find the best ideas for merging different sets of data. I submitted a proposal on behalf of the Digital Expansion Initiative titled “The Human Side of the Digital Divide.”
The proposal is to take the stories we’re gathering from people with marginal access to the Internet and put them in the context of data about both Internet infrastructure and poverty. Follow the link for more information.
We could win $100,000, but we need you to vote! First you have to log in, then you have to cast at least 5 votes for any one of your votes to count. So, in addition to voting for our proposal, you should vote for these 4 other ones from our media activism community:
- Community Based DigiMapping, from Media Alliance
- Mapping the Media Change Movement, from the Media and Democracy Coalition
- YourMediaWorld, from the Center for International Media Action
- Planning for the People, from the Burlington public access station
Help us all move on to the next round!
