OpenDataRace: Vote for what City of Philadelphia data set and local nonprofit you want to support

It's online voting to show that nonprofits care about open data

Full Disclosure: Technically Philly has helped organized the Open Data Race.

The OpenDataRace, a contest to show support for the release of City of Philadelphia data and the nonprofit missions that need it, has launched open voting. Technically Philly first reported on the contest here.
With an registration, users can vote for a single data set — of 21 selected from more than 30 nominated — once a week through the month of October. At the end of voting, three small cash prizes will be given to the nonprofits that nominated the top data sets, and contest organizers will work with the city to have that data released.
The OpenDataRace organizers are Azavea, which built the site, NPower, the William Penn Foundation and, full disclosure, Technically Philly.
