ClearForest Announces Mashup Contest

In addition to launching the ClearForest SWS-1, ClearForest is announcing the first in a series of developer contests for the most creative use of the API. First place winner receives $2,000, second place $1,000 and third place $500. The contest challenges developers to create innovative applications that highlight semantic processing.

Applications should combine the SWS-1 web service with other web services APIs to create the smartest and coolest mashups in the world. Example applications might include, passing the results of a Google® query to SWS-1, having it respond with all the people in the results set, and then using the Technorati™ API to find those people’s blogs, and provide those links along side the search results. Another example might be searching RSS feeds for particular people or companies. The contest begins today with final submissions due by December 11, 2006 and winners to be announced by December 18, 200

The beta release of the ClearForest SWS-1 is available immediately. For more information on the web service and the contest please, please visit http://sws.clearforest.com
