Social Actions'
Change the Web Challenge is going to be here before you know it. We will be reaching out to developers w/the goal of creating 100 new tools that help make it easier to find, share, and take actions online. You'll be able to vote on your favorite apps -- and determine the featured 20.

A panel of judges will determine the final three winners - with a split of $10,000 in prize money.

The question is, Who should these judges be?

We're looking for 5 esteemed voices who have helped and/or continue to help define the web, and the Internet's potential for facilitating change, as well as pioneers in the Web 2.0 and social media sector and leaders in the nonprofit, advocacy, and world-changing spaces.

Please nominate a judge by leaving a comment -- you can also nominate a judge via Twitter here.

Note: We will review all nominations and invite judges to participate mid-next week.

Who do I nominate? None other than Beth Kanter (@kanter). Beth is an inspiration to us all - and her experience and expertise would be key to highlighting the best ways to use the web to save the world.

I'd nominate myself, but I don't even have an internet connection.

I nominate Britt Brave (@Bbravo) and Rolf Kleef (@rolfkleef). Both powerful sources of knowledge in the nptech sphere; and with their vast been-around-the-block experience, I can't think of better judges and mentors for those entering this contest.
