Don't forget that midnight tonight (Pacific Daylight Time) is the deadline to submit your draft entry for the Applications of R in Business Contest, with $20,000 in prizes up for grabs from Revolution Analytics. You'll still be able to edit your entry during the public review period (until November 30), but no new entries will be accepted for the competition after tonight's deadline. 

We've already got some great entries with applications in manufacturing, finance, sports, IT, social network analysis and other industry-specific uses of R, but with seven cash prizes available there's a good chance of winning. We don't have too many entries yet making use of the unique capabilities of Revolution R Enterprise (like big data analysis, Hadoop, or Web Services integration), so that's something to consider given there's a $5,000 prize for such entries.

So get your entries -- at least a rough draft -- in today to qualify. All submissions will be viewable publicly at noon PDT tomorrow, at which point you can make comments on the entries for the benefit of the judges.
