Only Two [and a Half] More Days to Vote for the UC Berkeley Human Rights Center Mobile Challenge!
With the week at it's halfway point, there's ony two and a half more days to vote for your favorite project proposals from the UC Berkeley Human Rights Center Mobile Challenge!
Every single one of the projects has an element (or many elements, for that matter) of intrige, thoughtfulness, and/or just-plain-cool packed into them and half the fun of voting is simply getting a lay of the land of just what's going on in the world of mobile tech development for good.
So, if you don't already know, a bit more about the challenge
The Human Rights Center is sponsoring a challenge to encourage innovations for applying mobile technologies for human rights investigations and advocacy. Through a NetSquared Community vote, 10 finalists will be chosen. All 10 finalists will be invited to present their ideas at an international conference, "The Soul of the New Machine: Human Rights, Technology, and New Media," at UC Berkeley, May 4 and 5, 2009. A panel of judges, selected by the Human Rights Center, will choose three winners, to be announced at the conference. Winners will receive cash awards of $15,000 (first place), $10,000 (second place), and $5,000 (third place) to implement their ideas.
