Sunlight Snags Open Source Award
BY Nancy Scola | Wednesday, July 22 2009
Clay Johnson and his team at Sunlight Labs have won the 2009 Google-O'Reilly Open Source Award at OSCON 2009 in the "Best Community Builder" category.* Not bad for a bunch of civic-minded government geeks. Interesting note on the evolution of the web: OSCON didn't even have a community category award back in 2005. It has since morphed from "Best Community Activist" to "Best Community Builder" to "Best Community Amplifier" and back again to the builder designation this year.
