Technorati Winners Announced

Dave announces the winners of the Technorati API contest.

"Grand Prize goes to Josh Tauberer, a Penn graduate student. He built govtrack.us, which uses the Technorati API to track bills through Congress."
A description of Josh's app from the contest winners page on Technorati.
"Want to know the status of a bill on the floor of Congress, who misses the most votes, or who gets the most bills passed? GovTrack.us is like School House Rock on steroids for adults (oh, and children). Govtrack.us uses the Technorati API to show what bloggers are saying about bills as they work their way through Congress."
Josh got some kudos from the Technorati team and $2,500 to boot. Not bad for having fun with free data.
