There's only a few days left to enter the Civic Data Challenge: entries are due before midnight EST on July 29 to qualify for the $100,000 in prizes. The competition, open to US residents, challenges particpants to applications and visualizations from civic health data. Prizes will be awarded by a panel of prestigious judges. Looks like a great opportunity to break out R and the big-data capabilities of Revolution R Enterprise to win cash and provide insights to the community in the process! You can find information on how to participate at the Civic Data Challenge website.
