How to vote for breast cancer


I’ve made a mashup project for my phd breast cancer work and need votes to get it built by a group of geeks who feel democratic.

If you have 5 minutes to spend, I’d really appreciate it if you could take the time to vote for it before Friday afternoon, here’s the details:

Ok. Let’s rock the vote!

1. Please register and log in to the NetSquared site by Thursday, and pick a user name for a new account. They will email you a password. (don’t worry, they won’t spam you, these guys are good guys)
2. Registration has been automated for the duration of the voting process. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please check your junk mail.
3. Click the Projects link to review project proposals.
4. Click on my Worldwide Breast Cancer Map project in the list and click “add project to ballot” at the top of my project page.
5. You must choose at least 5 (and up to 10) of your favorite projects.
6. You may only vote once for a project.
7. Once you have chosen the 5 projects you want to vote for, please review your selection.
8. Submit your ballot to cast your final votes. Once you SUBMIT, that’s it!

They request that you vote for 5 projects. I think it is to help get more than one project to stand out. So, add 5 projects to your ballot and then submit them. The voting ends on Friday at 4pm Mountain Standard Time. There are some cool mashups out there!

Thanks! Email your friends and have them vote too! 🙂

NetSquared Mashup Challenge

It has been a busy few months…mostly because I’m getting married in a few weeks!…but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to submit my breast cancer project to the Netsquared Mashup Challenge and ask for your feedback (and hopefully your vote!).
