App My State

I submitted an idea for the App My State comp which was officially announced Friday.

You can submit apps or ideas.

This comp also differs from Mashup Australia and Apps4nsw because it's not a mashup don't even need to use a dataset, you just need to build or suggest an application.

If you would like to see my idea: Pick & Mix Vic Data you can visit the App My State ideas entry page located here.

Happy Innovating!

I love this video from TED 2010.
Before I watched it I read that the audience had drew gasps!
I was excited and I thought maybe it would be something related to imagery or interactivity of placemarkers...but I was really suprised when I saw that it was related to video and in particular web cams! :D We were just speaking the other day saying that web cams really haven't peaked yet... this awesome demo shows how you can interact with a map in real time! :D
I think that is such a fantastic space to be working in:

Ideas for this
# Ask a store assistant questions
#Visit a library
# Internet tours
# Participate in a gym session
# Basically anything you do in real life would be able to happen through bing maps..that's pretty amazing and the technology already! :D

Love augmented reality!
