Message-ID: <CBF3F05E.3E1C4%george.thomas1@hhs.gov>
Seven domain and platform developer challenges were announced today at the
Health Datapalooza [1]. An overview of the planned challenges can be found
here [2]. Two are open now to interested submitters, a Metadata [3] and
WebID [4] based challenges, with $35K prizes each, closing in early
October 2012.

For more overall context on the healthdata.gov platform and these related
developer challenges, see this presentation [5] that briefly describes our
direction and related works, including a DERI [6] collaboration to
leverage WebID using a Linked Data API [7] integration with the Privacy
Preference Ontology [8], which is also the subject of #semtechbiz
presentation [9] (today!).

Please syndicate widely at your discretion and include #healthdata hashtag
where appropriate. Threaded discussion will occur on challenge.gov, with
moderated blog post comments on healthdata.gov, but feel free to email me
if you're interested in participating with any questions or observations.

We would like to thank W3C for participating as our organizational partner
to review submissions for both challenges announced today. We hope *you*
will engage with us as we attempt to enhance the capabilities of our open
source platform and the utility of our linked data, and decide to team up
or go it alone to compete in our developer challenges!
