USA.gov and Wired.com blog about the CDC Flu App Challenge!

Word about the CDC Flu App Challenge is spreading. We recently earned exciting coverage in respected press outlets and popular blog channels. Wired.com posted about the contest in their blog GeekDad, and USA.gov promoted it with a post as well. In addition, news articles on Eweek.com, FierceMobileHealthcare.com, and DrugStoreNews.com are helping to promote the challenge.

The attention seems to have increased awareness among developers, as the submissions are starting to pour in. So far, we have six contest entries. And with more than 600 tweet metions, and nearly 400 Facebook likes from the challenge page alone, we expect to get more submissions in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the support, and if you haven't shared the challenge with your network yet, what are you waiting for? $35K in prizes is up for grabs for the best solution!
