Submission + - FCC pays $100K to open source apps challenge winne (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "The challenge: Develop useful, localized open source apps that make local public information more personalized and usable.
With that idea as the backdrop the Federal Communications Commission and the Knight Foundation today awarded Code for America developer Ryan Resella the $30,000 Apps for Communities Challenge grand prize. Resella won for his YAKB.us app, a real time bus notification system for bus riders without a smartphone. Rasella developed an app that uses voice and SMS to deliver arrival times in English and Spanish."
