Microsoft is running an HTML5 app-building contest called Dev: Unplugged with some killer prizes, including a grand prize of $9,000 in cash and a fully-loaded trip to Future of Web Apps.
The two categories, gaming and music, come with some sweet licensed content—Hellboy (woo!) and two fantastic tracks by AWOLNATION and Ra Ra Riot.
I’m on the judging panel and will be selecting a winner to receive a special award for Most Innovative Design and UX.
The prize is an Eee Slate and the beautiful Internet Case Study and Guidelines for Online Success books. (All the prizes, by the way, are amazing.)
