Mashups for social change

Net Squared, an annual conference that focuses on the intersection between technology and the nonprofit world, is running a contest this year to focus attention on the power of the mashup. The site advertising the contest features Sami Ben Gharbia’s Tunisia Prison Map as an example of the sorts of amazing social change purposes maps can be put towards.

Contest winners will be flown to the NetSquared contest and win their share of a $100,000 prize fund. You can help honor amazing projects like Ushahidi by visiting the site between now and the end of Friday and voting for the projects you think are doing the best work with mapping and mashups.
