    reifman writes “In an unusual move, Amazon abruptly pulled the plug on its $100,000 Civic Apps contest for AWS, redirecting contestants to the AWS government site. All entrants through October 15th were to receive a $50 AWS credit. Amazon AWS PR says they, ‘…accidentally pushed this out early, but please stay tuned for more information on this program later this year.’ The contest site, rules (pdf) and FAQ (pdf) of the apparently still upcoming contest can be read from the google cache. Contest prize winners would have had to ‘spend’ their AWS credits by December 2014.”
