I don't have a lot of time, so I'll be brief:
A few months ago Project Byzantium sent an application for the Access Innovation Prize, an initiative that will award five $20kus grants to projects operating in five problem spaces (Blackout Resilience, Making Crypto Easy, The Bounty, The Golden Jellybean, and the Access Facebook Award).
We were recently notified that we are finalists in the Blackout Resilience category and will be attending the awards ceremony on 10 December 2012.
