Even more software ideas aimed at news engagement, reporting or journalistic challenges by #MozNewsLab

That concludes the final project submissions from the 2011 #MozNewsLab participants. Twenty of these individuals will be invited to the next phase of the program – a five-day “code sprint” in Berlin. The sprint will bring together these individuals with Mozilla developers and our news partners with the aim of further developing software prototypes. It’s going to be an amazing week.

Invitations will be going out next week and we’ll have an announcement about who’s going to Berlin shortly thereafter.

Unfortunately (well, fortunately for me!), I’m heading off on vacation on Thursday, so you’ll want to keep your eye on Planet Mojo for updates.
