By 4/30: Vote for Your Favorite Mashup

For those who may not know, Mashups combine 2 or more online sources to create something new. One example is WikipediaVision, which combines updates to Wikipedia on its public page, with the MaxMind database that translates IP addresses into geographical locations.

Just posted to the NMC Technology Advisory Board List:

Hello NMC,

Something fun to share from the University of Pennsylvania - Our annual mashup contest has taken off this year with 32 entries, and for the first time, we are taking online votes at

All entries are linked there with descriptions. Online voting closes on April 30 at 10 am.

Would you help us spread the word and get as many people as possible to watch the entries and vote for their favorites online?

At our awards event this Thursday, we will award prizes to the winners selected by our judging panel as well as certificates to the winners of the online voting. If you have any suggestions for us, please let us know.

best wishes,
- Anu
