What questions do you have about open data, apps contests and sustainability?

*What questions do you have about open data, apps contests and sustainability?*

Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency launched a contest to build “green apps” using its data. After months of preparation, development, publicity and engagement, the contest produced 38 apps:http://appsfortheenvironment.challenge.gov/submissions

Last week, the winners of the contest were announced

Tomorrow, I’ll be moderating a panel at the forum on “business, tech and user perspectives.” at a forum in Arlington, Virginia: http://www.epa.gov/appsfortheenvironment/forum.html

Please vote and/or comments on the series of questions for my panelists on Google Moderator — or add your own!

Some questions:

-What were the most successful outreach channels? Specific list-servs, websites, official EPA sites/email lists, Twitter/FB, etc

-Who was the most successful target audience of developers? Is it companies that deal in environment space? Non-profits? University students? Just random hackers?
