Announcing the BOSS Mashable Challenge

Today at Open Hack 2008, we’ll be announcing a new developer challenge we’re hosting with Mashable. Since Yahoo! Search BOSS is all about openness and innovation, we figured the BOSS Mashable Challenge should be too; so there are almost no restrictions on what you can submit. Have an idea for a better way to search on the iPhone? Always wanted a search engine to help you find info on your hobby? Think you could design a better UI than 10 blue links? Now is your chance to build a mashup or prototype, win some cash and show the world your hack. As long as you use a BOSS API and submit it to the Challenge, your idea can win.
The Challenge starts today and the deadline for submission is September 28. Mashable and Yahoo! will then pick the top submission and open it up to Mashable readers for voting. The winner will receive $2000, a nod on Mashable and loads of street (or geek) cred.
Those of you who’ve already built mashups using BOSS are of course eligible as well. Just make sure to submit it to the Challenge. And if you’re coming to Open Hack 2008, don’t forget to stop by the BOSS session at 3:00 this afternoon.
