Freewebs and Widgetbox Announce Contest Winner

Freewebs and Widgetbox, who partnered for the presentation of The Big Widget Challenge, have announced the winner. Ernesto Quezada's Moving Earth widget has taken the first place prize. We first covered the announcement of the contest here.

Mashing official Geological Survey information with Google Maps, the Moving Earth widget shows up-to-date earthquakes and their magnitude using graphics and animation. The date and location are also displayed, and you can scan the map for quakes based on magnitude as well.

London-based Quezada won the contest, which based its widget challenge on a favorite pop culture character, a green theme and the online theory of connectedness.
