Congratulations to the Winners of the Knight News Challenge!

A Knight Foundation contest that looked for the best cases of giving big data to the general public has announced its six winners.

Three projects present new data. OpenElections, Census.IRE.org, and Pop Up Archive plan to provide comprehensive, highly-searchable data for public research and enjoyment.

The other three — Safecast, LocalData, and Development Seed — have created new toolsets for people to contribute to big data, be it by measuring radition in Los Angeles or by using a smart phone to share data with Google Earth, Fusion Tables, and elsewhere.
