The MapGuide Open Source project has announced a Logo/Mascot Contest:
The wording for this announcement looks eerily familiar (it’s based on an annoucement I helped draft for the main Open Source Geospatial Foundation contest a while back) but the goodies are a bit more general-interest than the OSGeo contest:
- $150 worth of free swag featuring the new logo
- a 30g video iPod
I wonder who’s sponsoring these prizes ;)
In related news, the OSGeo Logo Contest has turned up several excellent designs in the submission phase, and voting is open to all people with logins to the OSGeo site… which happens to be the sole requirement for OSGeo membership. First visit the OSGeo website to check out the logo contest submissions, and then vote using the procedure outlined in this email:
- I prefer the OSGeo moniker, but I heard Steve Lime at the recent Oregon GIS In Action conference say that he prefers OSGF. I wonder how this will shake out in time.
- I wonder what is going to happen to the fifth copy of MapGuide Studio, since the OSGeo contest only got four entries. Hint: I could use a copy to play around with at home :)
- I realize that my sporadic postings have been a bit MapGuide-centric. No apologies here; I’m going to be posting about what I’m currently interested in and playing with.
