Tonight's The Last Night To Vote For Bike Data! Bring It Home!

This morning, we were 100 votes down.  As I write this, we've cut the deficit to 35.  If this were sports, ESPN would make a '30 For 30' film about this comeback.  It's just that exciting.

The Open Data Race voting ends tonight at midnight.  You can vote once a week.  If it's been more than a week, or you haven't voted at all, 

A vote for our Reported Bike Thefts entry pays off double for bicycling in Philly:

  1. Bike Theft Data.  We'll use it to create maps, helping enforcement and warning bicyclists about high risk areas.
  2. $2,000 prize money, which will help keep the bike corral in Philly.  Otherwise, it gets returned to Minnesota.
It's almost stupid how big of an impact you can make on Philadelphia bicycling by taking 10 seconds (if you've registered already) or 90 seconds (if you haven't) and voting.

Help us keep the wonderful and innovative bike corral at Walnut & Sydenham Streets...
Innovative, green, 21st-century urban transportation wonderfulness
