The awards were judged by Mike Jones, MySpace’s new Co-President, and Ron Conway, renowned angel investor, and David Glazer, Director of Engineering at Google, and Robert Scoble, tech blogger and uber-geek.
GeoMeme uses the new MySpace Real-Time Stream API to tap into the flood of geo-located updates being posted by MySpace users all around the world.
Activity Streams from MySpace are mashed up with tweets from a number of mobile Twitter apps, and located onto a Google Map. Local trends are identified using semantic analysis services from Yahoo.
Beyond the discovery and measurement of real-time local trends, GeoMeme also provides a unique view into local activity streams, as a way to discover new like-minded and nearby friends. You can then buy the t-shirt (really, you can!) to share your trends with your friends.
And congratulations to the other winners of the Challenge:
