What now for government sponsored app competitions?
Given this interesting tid-bit, the obvious question to ask is - why, seemingly, do they fail (both app comps and the apps themselves)?
How do we measure whether app comps are a success? Do we base it on the sheer number of entries, or perhaps the sustainability of any victorious apps? There are some who believe any government sponsored challenge should be tied to solving known service problems.
Give us your thoughts.
Some background reading to stoke discussion.
