Social Mention wins Myspace Developer Challenge

This is great news.  Jon Cianciullo has done it again.  His app Social Mention has just won the prize for "Most innovative use of the Open Search API" at the Myspace Developer Challenge.

Social Mention is a social media search and analysis platform that aggregates user generated content into a single stream of information. It allows users to track and measure what people are saying about a topic across the web’s social media landscape in real-time. Social Mention integrates with the MySpace Open Search API to provide photo and video results to be analyzed in its social media search results, emails alerts, and RSS feeds.

The prize is a nice $10K.  Way to go Jon!

Online voting has also commenced for the People’s Choice Awards. Show your support for Ottawa’s only Start-Up represented in Texas. You can vote for DoGood Headquarters up to once a day at. https://secure.sxsw.com/peoples_choice/

It’s pretty cool. A year go at SXSW the idea for the DoGooder was germinating over some BBQ. A year later it’s nominated for a Technical Achievement award.
