Dean Mao wins Google coding competition on OpenSocial/MySpace

One of our co-founders, Dean Mao, won another coding competition, this time with WeekendApps on the OpenSocial platform.  He doesn’t like publicity, but I thought I’d mention this feat anyway.  He won a pass to the Google IO conference, 1 million banner ad impressions, and some conversations from two private equity guys who want to hire away our star.  Next week, the app will be live on myspace/orkut/my. Yahoo/google.  And we hope to be able to ad-serve it with our social ad platform.  Congratulations to Dean!  Look for a note from him when the app is publicly live.
